Winter holidays followed by annual divorce spike

Few people in Connecticut may associate the holiday season with divorce. Instead, the winter holidays are often linked to family gatherings and togetherness. However, the holidays may be one major reason why divorce rates consistently rise every year in January. Even as overall national divorce rates show a steady decline, January brings with it a spike in marital dissolutions on an annual basis. People may have different reasons for ending their marriage with the new year, but many of them follow up on holiday celebrations.

The trucker may not carry all the blame for your accident

If you have recently suffered injuries in an accident involving a tractor-trailer or other large truck, chances are your injuries are significant, perhaps life-altering. This is understandable since a tractor-trailer can weigh up to 20 times the weight of an average passenger vehicle. It is not unusual for victims of such accidents to suffer catastrophic injuries that require extensive medical treatment and lifelong aftercare.

Depressed doctors commit more medical errors

Doctors in Connecticut may experience depression just like anyone else. However, when a doctor is feeling down, patients may be at an increased risk of harm from medical errors. According to a recent meta-analysis of studies, doctors who experience depressive symptoms admit to making more medical errors in their practice. Researchers also found that doctors who have made medical mistakes in the past might be more likely to become depressed.

How women can protect themselves financially in divorce

Women in Connecticut who divorce are more likely than men to see a drop in their income and are at greater risk of ending up in poverty. For these reasons, women should be particularly careful about their finances throughout the divorce process. Before the divorce, they should make sure they have copies of financial paperwork, such as tax returns, bank statements and other documentation about their assets.
