Diagnostic errors are a common form of medical malpractice

Researchers from Johns Hopkins Medicine found that, according to one study, diagnostic errors were the most common medical mistakes physicians made, in addition to being the most serious type of medical mistake a physician could make. The study revealed that while it is not known exactly how many patients experience a diagnostic error, every year 40,000 to 80,000 patients die in hospitals in the U.S., including hospitals in Connecticut, and that some of these deaths may be attributable to misdiagnoses.

Truckers must follow hours-of-service rules

Drowsy driving is a major concern on Connecticut roads, especially among truckers. This is because a fully-loaded semi-truck can weigh as much as 80,000 pounds. If a trucker falls asleep behind the wheel and collides with another vehicle, the sheer physics of the situation often means that the occupants of the other vehicle can be seriously injured or even killed. It is for this reason that the federal government has "hours-of-service" rules that limit how long a trucker can be on-duty before having to take a rest break.
