Our firm fights for victims of drunk driving accidents


A few weeks ago on the blog we discussed dram shop laws and how important they can be for individuals in Fairfield who have been injured in a drunk driving accident. Victims of these tragic wrecks have a lot to deal with, including recovering their health and figuring out how to pay their medical expenses and other bills. All of this can be challenging, especially when a victim is left in a condition where he or she is unable to work. A personal injury lawsuit may help a victim pursue damages, but when the drunk driver who caused the accident is unable to pay the full extent of the harm caused, dram shop laws can step in to provide additional relief.

Though suing an establishment who served alcohol to a drunk individual can be one way to seek compensation, it isn't always easy. Businesses have more resources to not only pay damages, but also to fight against claims of liability. When they are armed with knowledgeable and persuasive attorneys, you need to think about what you can do to even the playing field.

One way may be to seek out a competent attorney of your own. There are many lawyers in Connecticut, so the decision can be daunting. To start, you should think about what is important to you and your family and what you want in your ally in the legal battle ahead.

At the Law Offices of James L O'Rourke, we work with our clients to assess their needs and aggressively pursue them. We are skilled negotiators and zealous litigators who utilize the laws of personal injury and evidence to bolster our clients' positions. Though we can never guarantee any particular outcome in a case, we take pride in our track record of holding negligent parties accountable and pursuing compensation for those in need.
