Tips from Tindall
Understanding the Civil Damages of DUI
Individuals who recklessly drive their vehicle while under the strong influence of alcohol or drugs has increasingly become a huge problem for innocent pedestrians and other innocent drivers, whose very life and safety can be put at risk. 
CT law, of course specifically prohibits this conduct both from a criminal perspective and from the civil standpoint. 
On the criminal side  these "drunk drivers" as they are often called can serve jail time and lose their license for a period of time for their dangerous behavior. 
On the civil side , when these drunk drivers harm other innocent motorists or pedestrians. There are three main CT statues that apply, which prohibit this conduct. Violation of these traffic safety statutes can expose the drunk driver, and in many case their insurance company, to a verdict at trial for not only regular money damages, but also double and treble damages and punitive damages for their wrongful conduct.  Read More

Top Summer Injuries and Illness to Watch For 
Here's a running list of some of the top illnesses and injuries that happen often in the summer:
  • Heat exhaustion and strokes from buildings heating up from summertime sun and higher UV rays
  • Trips, falls, cuts, burns, and breaks from summertime activities like sports, fireworks, and travel
  • Stress and injuries from indoor work tasks performed by remaining employees
  • Food-borne illnesses and poisoning from increased outdoor activities and heat during the summer
It's no wonder that companies see an increase in the amount of injury claims both on and off the worksite. According to the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), employers are responsible for protecting workers from injury and illness while they are working. They provide helpful guidelines for preventing common summer issues, like heat exhaustion, but by using common sense, employers can take steps to reduce worker injuries.
It's also important to note that employers must report to OSHA any and all accidents or illnesses that require medical treatment.
