Can I lose my Connecticut CDL if I am in a truck accident?

As a Connecticut driver with a commercial driver's license or CDL, you already know that you are held to a different standard from other drivers. You must take greater precautions with safety, maintain a cleaner driving record, and know the hazards of your commercial vehicle inside and out. But are standards so strict that a single truck accident could revoke your license? What happens if you are in a collision?

What is wrong-site surgery?

You have heard the horror stories and seen the films about urban legends where a patient goes into surgery for a routine procedure such as an appendectomy, and wakes up with their leg amputated. While these occurrences may seem fantastical and completely impossible in the real world of Connecticut, they can in fact happen outside of your nightmares. When this occurs, it is known as "wrong-site surgery."

What is defensive medicine?

Patients in Connecticut who go in for medical care may turn out to be victims of defensive medicine. This is a practice many healthcare practitioners use to protect themselves from getting sued. Fearful of missing something, they over-order tests and procedures that are completely unnecessary which is bad for the patients, physicians and healthcare costs.
