Dog owners in Connecticut must be in control of their dogs at all times. In any cases in which animal bites cause injuries, the pet owners can be held strictly liable. Dog bites can cause severe damage -- both physical and emotional -- not to mention the financial consequences of such injuries.
Early this month, in Bloomfield, a crash between a police squad car and an SUV left the driver of the SUV critically injured. It happened at about 8:30 at night. Officials say the patrol car's lights and siren were on and the squad car, a Ford Explorer, crashed into the passenger side of the SUV at an intersection.
Connecticut operates under a set of laws that requires drivers -- whether they are behind the wheel or a set of motorcycle handlebars -- to carry a minimum amount of insurance. Not everyone does this, however. And those who do get the necessary coverage often opt for only the bare minimum.
The sudden death of an individual might not be something that rocks the world, but it certainly rocks the world of those who have lost that loved one. In the wake of a horrific and deadly crash, whether it happens in Connecticut or somewhere else, lives can be left in shambles. Questions abound about what happened.
