Losing a loved one under any circumstances can be tough for Connecticut residents to handle. Some deaths may be somewhat expected, as those that involve long-term illness and others may come completely out of nowhere. Unfortunately, the actions or inaction of other people can sometimes contribute to these unexpected deaths, and if a doctor or other medical professional acted negligently, there may be cause to file medical malpractice claims.
Parents of young children often want to do whatever they can to protect their kids. This desire typically leads Connecticut parents to use child-safe products in hopes of avoiding any unfortunate accidents that could involve their children. However, some issues with certain products may not become known until after distribution, and if injuries occur, parents may have reason to file products liability claims.
Most homes have window blinds. Families with children younger than 9 should carefully inspect their blinds, curtains, and other window adornments to prevent a tragedy from occurring. Exposed pull and tilt cords — along with tightly threaded inner cords — have the potential of strangling toddlers and youngsters who get wrapped up in them while playing or spending time in an unattended room.
Fatalities can happen under any number of circumstances. When motor vehicle accidents involve pedestrians, it is not unusual for those pedestrians to suffer fatal injuries. Unfortunately, many families are often left reeling after such events, and determining how to handle the situations can be difficult. However, some individuals may feel that legal action may suit their particular circumstances.
Needing to undergo surgery can cause many Connecticut residents to feel very uneasy. This type of invasive procedure may be necessary in order for a serious medical condition to be addressed, but accepting this necessity can be difficult. This apprehensive feeling is sometimes warranted, as medical malpractice in the form of surgical errors is not uncommon.
