Drunk driving victims deserve justice

In 2012, Connecticut suffered 85 drunk driving fatalities in which the driver's blood alcohol content was between 0.08 and 0.15, according to the National Highway Transportation Safety Administration. In the United States, according to the NHTSA, in 2012 a fatality due to a drunk driving accident occurred every 51 minutes. Victims of this reckless, dangerous and illegal act and their families require assistance to obtain compensation that they deserve for losses suffered from a drunk driver.

Since 1993, our firm represented clients that were injured by an impaired driver. Our firm has vigorously fought for just settlements for our clients, and we have represented clients when their cases proceeded to trial.

We also represent families who may file a wrongful death action for the loss of a loved one. In a wrongful death action, families may seek damages for items such as medical expenses, lost income, future lost wages and funeral expenses.

Prompt legal advice should be sought after a drunk driving accident to learn about your rights. It is essential to quickly obtain evidence such as witness statements, police reports and Breathalyzer and blood alcohol content test results. Time periods restrict the time that a lawsuit may be filed and can impact the ability to obtain compensation in a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit. Determining the amount of damages also requires assistance.

Our drunk driving accident page contains information on the assistance we provide to drunk driving accident victims and their families. If you are recovering from injuries suffered in a drunk driving accident, contact our firm and learn about how we may be able to help.
