Connecticut has been cracking down on drunk drivers for many years. It is a leading cause of injury and death on our roads and it is entirely preventable. But one of the most important tools to fight drunk driving is very old. Bars are liable for the mayhem that results from serving someone who is drunk.
Filing a personal injury or wrongful death suit against drunk drivers can hold them accountable for injuries and deaths they cause. If you or a family member was the victim of a drunk driving accident, it is important to determine whether there may be an additional liable party: the bar or restaurant that overserved the drunk driver.
