What is the Connecticut Good Samaritan Law?



Connecticut has Good Samaritan Laws with the overriding purpose of encouraging professionals and laypersons to help those in need of emergency medical assistance or first aid, even when they are under no legal obligation to do so.


The protection against liability applies in cases where a person:

  • Provides emergency assistance

  • Administers first aid

  • Uses epinephrine cartridges (EpiPens)

  • Prescribes or administers opioid antagonists (Narcan)

  • Seeks care for a drug overdose

  • Rescues a child or animal from a motor vehicle
