Occupational Lung Disease

This group of work-related injury compensable under workers’ compensation in Connecticut include occupational asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), bronchiolitis obliterans, inhalation injury, lung cancer, mesothelioma, and infections. Most lung related work injuries occur within State Government in Connecticut, local government jobs were next highest and utilities third highest. While just 6% of workers’ compensation cases are lung related, the toll that lung injuries take on the body is immense. Medications are very expensive and damage the body over time. Lung injuries are a particular interest at Ferry Law because Ferry Law understands the connection to our mind, body and soul comes from our breath. Attorney Ferry has been a Yogi for nearly 20 years and has extensively practiced many...

Car, Truck, Motorcycle Accident Amputations Are Becoming a Growing Trend

If you or someone you know has had a body part amputated due to someone else's negligence, please contact an attorney at our Connecticut personal injury office right away. Amputees are becoming a growing population due to severe impacts that occur from distracted motorists failing to pay attention to motorcyclists, pedestrians and others traveling along our busy Connecticut roadways. There are 185,000 new lower extremity amputations each year just within the United States, with an estimated 2 million American amputees. It is projected that the amputee population will more than double by the year 2050. (Source: AdvancedAmputees.com) Ferry Law handled a case involving a truck versus motorcycle accident in which a helmeted motorcyclist became pinned with his right leg under...

Ethical Rules for Discharged Lawyers-Seems There are None

In a stunning decision by our Statewide Grievance Committee as a result of my first ever grievance filed against an Attorney, I learned that our ethical rules prohibiting a discharged lawyer from contacting his former client do not apply as long as the discharged lawyer claims he was confused and uncertain he had been fired. The facts of my case are as follows: The discharged lawyer received a letter from me and another from my client, which politely informed him that his client had switched teams and that no further communication with the client should take place. Can you see how confused the discharged lawyer must have been? As if hit by a stun gun from the Star Trek Enterprise,...

Benefits of a Mind/Body Practice

20th century life is fast paced. There is plenty of strife in our world, and whether it's starving refugees in the Middle East or Democrats and Republicans in the USA behaving poorly, all of it affects us. Add the demands of keeping a roof over your head, providing food for your family, caring for elderly parents, trying to keep your 150 passwords in a place you remember, etc., and we ALL need to hit the reset button often. If you don't practice being still and being quiet, you risk making yourself sick in ways you probably never imagined. So, as the old saying goes, an apple a day keeps the doctor away....That's nice, but how about my saying, "Stillness prevents...
