NEW HAVEN DRUNK DRIVING CAR ACCIDENTS ATTORNEYS
WHEN DRUNK DRIVERS OR DRUGGED DRIVERS CAUSE ACCIDENTS
People who drive under the influence of alcohol or drugs are a danger to themselves and everyone else on the road. When impaired drivers cause auto accidents that result in serious injuries to innocent people, not only should they answer for the criminal acts they have committed, but they must also answer to their victims.
If you or a loved one suffered injuries as a victim of a drunk or drugged driving accident, it is important that you seek the advice of a qualified Connecticut personal injury attorney as soon as possible.
At the LoRicco Law Firm, our attorneys have extensive experience representing victims of impaired driving accidents across Connecticut.

FAIR COMPENSATION FOR ALL YOUR PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE NEEDS
In an accident involving an alcohol-impaired or drug-impaired driver, the potential for serious injuries is extremely high. Impaired drivers have been shown to have significantly reduced reaction times, which often means higher speeds at impact. Impaired drivers, even those impaired by marijuana alone, are less able to effectively navigate traffic and respond appropriately to changing conditions. They are more likely to cause a head-on collision by weaving over the center line, to rear-end an occupied vehicle, to strike another car broadside at a controlled intersection, or to hit a pedestrian or bicyclist.
- Bars, restaurants and others who serve alcohol can be sued under Connecticut dram shop law for an accident caused by a drunk driver they served. However, these are difficult cases to win, requiring an eyewitness to testify that the person wasvisibly intoxicated at the time the facility served the person another drink.
- Connecticut law also allows accident victims to pursue punitive damages against the individual on the basis of reckless operation. This roughly parallels criminal charges of vehicular manslaughter or assault with a motor vehicle.
Our lawyers know how to win. We will thoroughly investigate your accident, and we will work to determine the full extent of your injuries before we consider any settlement offer.
Our only concern is to secure compensation sufficient to accommodate your medical care, damage to property, loss of income, pain and suffering, and any other losses you may experience as a result of your injuries. We will explore the viability of claims for punitive damages and other compensation that may apply in your case.
