Connecticut Drunk Driving Accidents
Call (888) 486-3037 for Experienced Legal Presentation
Despite the national public awareness campaigns and education about the
dangers of drunk driving, accidents involving intoxicated motorists remain
a serious problem in the United States. According to the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC), approximately 10,265 people died in drunk
driving collisions in 2015, accounting for nearly one-third (29%) of all
traffic-related fatalities in the United States that year.
Those involved in a
car accident with a drunk driver often suffer serious injuries which require extensive
medical treatment and physical rehabilitation. The recovery process could
entail days, weeks, or months away from work. In order to receive compensation
for your injuries, our Hartford personal injury attorneys at
Zayas Law Firm are committed to taking legal action against the driver and hold him or
her responsible for the damages they caused.
Connecticut Dram Shop Laws
In addition to holding the drunk driver liable for your injuries, there
is a possibility that you can also hold bars and other establishments
that serve liquor responsible for serving alcohol to someone who is obviously
intoxicated, underage, or requests alcohol after hours. According to Connecticut’s
dram shop laws, if a bar, club, or restaurant negligently served alcohol
to a person that ends up causing an accident, the victim may be able to
pursue compensation from that establishment.
