Effective New Haven Injury Attorneys Who Hold Drunk Drivers Responsible
If it is determined that your accident was caused by a drunk driver, our firm can help you take appropriate legal action. You may be eligible for compensatory damages, including injuries, medical care, lost wages, pain and suffering and more. You may also be eligible to receive punitive damages, which are intended to punish the drunk driver for his or her negligent behavior. We can also work to determine if you are eligible for treble damages.
Our firm will also work to determine if a bar, restaurant or other liquor-serving establishment played a role in causing the accident. This is referred to as ” dram shop liability.” If the establishment continued to serve alcohol to an obviously intoxicated customer, that evidence may be admissible in court.
