Making sense of the 3 different types of products liability cases

When you've entered your local retail store, you've probably seen postings for recalled products hanging up in the entryway. You may have seen them for small kitchen appliances that manufacturers discovered pose a burn or cutting risk or a toy that is a choking hazard. Hundreds — if not thousands — of consumer products are recalled each year for either these reasons or others.

Underinsured drivers on the road could leave you at risk

You have car insurance, and you always pay your premium. You may have opted for full coverage, but the truth is that many other people do not. There are many reasons why drivers seek out the lowest premiums possible by obtaining only the minimum amount of coverage. Whatever the reason, those drivers could leave you at financial risk if they cause your crash.

Swimming pool liability: Tips for landlords

A landlord who rents a home or apartment with a swimming pool needs to cover him or herself with a carefully crafted premises liability. Although it's not possible to completely absolve oneself of liability when it comes to swimming pools, as long as the landlord does everything reasonably possible to prevent accidents and injuries -- and as long as he or she has a good liability waiver -- the threat of being held responsible in a swimming pool-related lawsuit will be minimized.

Crash fatalities: Are Connecticut roads becoming more dangerous?

This collection of information, called the Connecticut Crash Data Repository, helps provide an oversight of trends in collisions.

Why are women misdiagnosed more often than men?

Researchers at Johns Hopkins University published data in 2017 showing that one in every 20 Americans will be misdiagnosed with an incorrect medical condition at some point during their life. Another statistic they released that same year showed that a quarter of a million of all Americans each year die from suspected medical malpractice, a cause of death that is only surpassed by heart disease and cancer.
