Premises liability for Halloween

When Connecticut homeowners think about Halloween, they may only think about what kind of candy to give to trick-or-treaters. However, the holiday also provides the opportunity for people to be hurt on your property. It is important to know what you can do to make your property safe for trick-or-treaters and other guests.

Traumatic amputation could have a traumatic affect on your life

The injuries that a person may suffer in a Connecticut car accident can range from minor scrapes to life-altering, debilitating injuries. Of all of the serious car accident injuries that a person may suffer, traumatic amputation is among the most complex and painful. This can include everything from the loss of a limb to losing a part of an appendage, but it usually means extensive medical care and rehabilitation for victims.

My police report states " No Injuries"

Don't be alarmed if your car accident report states that there were no injuries sustained in your auto accident. Injuries at the scene of an accident are often masked by the surge of adrenaline rushing through the body, as well as the delayed onset of muscle soreness. DOMS as it is sometimes referred to, is the delay in pain sensation due to the high amount of adrenaline circulating through the body. Once the adrenaline wears off, the muscles, joints and ligaments that were injured in the accident become more and more inflamed causing extreme pain! This is also when contusions, bruises, and scratches from the accident become more apparent. The fact that a police officer does not indicate there are injuries at the accident scene is not surprising for those reasons.
