Falls kill about 1,800 U.S. nursing home residents annually

In a perfect world, every nursing home and assisted living facility across Connecticut would maintain a safe, nurturing environment where each resident readily gets the care he or she needs, but unfortunately, this is often not the case. At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we know that, in many state nursing homes, the quality of care older adults receive is up for debate, and when the quality of care suffers, injury risks – and specifically, resident fall risks – tend to rise.

Construction’s “Fatal Four” cause majority of worker deaths

If you or a loved one makes a living working in construction in Connecticut, you probably have a strong understanding of the numerous dangers that come with the profession. Today’s construction workers face a tremendously dangerous work environment each day, and they injure themselves or die on the job at higher rates than workers in numerous other industries and professions. At Kennedy, Johnson, Schwab & Roberge, L.L.C., we know that the same four factors cause the majority of today’s construction worker deaths, and we also recognize that many industry deaths could be avoidable if employers took more preventative measures to enhance safety.

Crane tragedy may have been caused by an unsafe practice

Large construction cranes are a common sight when crews are working on multi-story buildings. To many Connecticut residents, these cranes are just a background part of the scenery, despite looking as if they defy physics. It takes precise engineering and maintenance to keep construction cranes standing upright. If one of these massive pieces of machinery were to fall, the devastation would be almost unimaginable.

What is the attractive nuisance doctrine?

You do your best to try and make your children aware of the many dangers that they can encounter both inside and outside of your home in Connecticut. Yet while you can control and restrict their access to those dangerous elements inside your home, you have control over what they may come across outside. You know that there are plenty of attractions that, despite your warnings, your kids may be naturally drawn to. Your hope is the owners of the properties on which those attractions are found are mindful of their effect on children, and thus take steps to protect kids from them. 

Ten people taken to hospital after bus crash

For residents in Connecticut with children or disabled relatives, bus services can be an essential way of helping transport family members. It is logical for parents or others to expect that drivers of these buses make safety a priority at all times. Unfortunately, there may be situations when these buses end up in accidents that put occupants at risk of injury or even death.
