Car accidents involving alcohol are some of the most preventable

Many Connecticut residents enjoy a drink once in a while. Most of them know, however, that getting behind the wheel of a car after drinking too much is ill advised. Car accidents involving alcohol are some of the most preventable.

Far too many Connecticut residents end up on the roadways with drunk drivers. Some who have an encounter with an intoxicated driver are fortunate enough to avoid suffering serious injuries, or worse. Others are not as lucky. For the survivors, medical expenses, lost wages and other damages can add up quickly, and the responsible party needs to be held accountable.

If you are one of the unfortunate people who suffered injuries or lost a loved one to a drunk driver, it is important that you contact an attorney as soon as is practical after the accident. An investigation that may include an accident reconstruction will be arranged to gather the evidence needed to prove negligence on the part of the drunk driver. Additional evidence may be available from any criminal proceedings against the driver. Any evidence that prosecutors may introduce in court to establish beyond a reasonable doubt that the driver was intoxicated might also help establish negligence in a civil action.

All of this information is gathered in order to file a civil action on your behalf, whether you suffered serious injuries or lost a loved one. Your attorney will work to obtain the restitution you deserve. Many cases are settled before trial, but your attorney will be prepared to do so if necessary. A successfully litigated claim could result in an award of damages typically seen in car accidents of this nature.
