Helping hold drunk drivers accountable following an accident

Unexpected life events can happen at any time. While some of these events are positive and exciting, others are tragic and devastating. While motorists in Connecticut seek to protect themselves from harm by following the rules of the road, this defensive driving does not always protect them from the negligence of another. No one expects to encounter a drunk driver, and they certainly do not expect to suddenly be involved in a drunk driving crash.

The aftermath of a drunk driving accident can be catastrophic and life-altering. It is not only the physical injuries that impact a victim, but also the mental and emotional harm which together can create a tragic situation. At the Law Offices of James L. O'Rourke, our legal team is experienced with the sensitive nature of these types of accidents. Thus, we are dedicated to helping victims in the Fairfield area navigate a personal injury claims.

Drunk driving is one of the most dangerous, yet preventable, conditions on the roadways. These drunk drivers not only put themselves in harm's way, but also other motorist.
