Connecticut Dram Shop Attorneys
Lawyers Representing Drunk Driving Victims Across Connecticut
Whenever someone drinks to excess and decides to take the wheel, they make a reckless decision that can impact many lives. Drunk drivers cause thousands of accidents and injuries every year. In many cases, however, a drunk driver is not the only party responsible for an accident. Under Connecticut’s dram shop law, when a bar, restaurant or commercial establishment serves alcohol to someone who is visibly intoxicated, this establishment can be held liable for any injuries caused by the intoxicated person. Most dram shop claims relate to automobile accidents caused by intoxicated drivers, although people can bring dram shop claims in other circumstances as well, such as bar fights, assaults or other incidents. If you have been injured by an intoxicated person, you need a law firm that will hold every at-fault party liable for your injuries. The law firm of Moore, O'Brien & Foti is located in Middlebury and represents injured people throughout Connecticut.
