Your Rights After an Accident

People who are hurt by a drunk driver in Connecticut have the right to make a claim against the driver, as well as possible claims filed under the dram shop law. In the last few years, the state of Connecticut has toughened the laws that regulate bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. If a bar or restaurant serves alcohol to an intoxicated person who then causes an accident, the bar or restaurant can be held responsible.

A person who is hurt by a drunk driver can also make a claim for punitive damages as a result of the driver’s recklessness. Punitive damages are monetary compensation awarded to an injured party that goes beyond that which is necessary to compensate the individual for losses and that is intended to punish the wrongdoer.
