Drunk driving victims face difficult issues


Victims of drunk driving accidents and their families face numerous challenges in seeking compensation for losses and injuries suffered through the reckless behavior of others. Compounding these issues, moreover, are the difficulties accompanying the physical harm and loss of income that may be experienced in these crashes. Families often suffer the incalculable loss of a loved one.

Preston man almost causes serious drunk driving accident

Just to the east of Hartford, police arrested a 21-year-old Preston man earlier this week. The young man appears to have been out drinking and driving the night of his 21st birthday. Not only had he been drinking, but police report that his blood alcohol level was more than twice the legal limit of 0.08. Despite leading police on a chase before he was finally arrested, he was fortunate that he avoided causing an accident and serious injuries.
