Recovering "Enhanced" Damages from Drunk Drivers

Accidents happen. Sometimes a forgivable mistake can lead to a tragic outcome, and so courts and juries will sometimes show sympathy to negligent parties. For drunk driving accidents, however, there is simply no excuse.

Because Connecticut's legislature, courts, and juries look down on drunk driving, victims are frequently awarded "enhanced" damages. The purpose of this is to further discourage individuals to drive under the influence.

Connecticut's drunk driving laws are harsh for a reason. In addition to receiving compensation for medical bills, lost wages, lost earnings potential, and pain and suffering, you may be eligible to recover punitive damages from a drunk driver.

"Dram Shop" — Liquor Liability Law in Connecticut

In addition to the damages you recover from the drunk driver or his or her insurance company, you may also be able to recover additional money from the insurance company of the bar or establishment that served the alcohol to the intoxicated driver. Bars and restaurants have a duty to make sure that their patrons do not become a danger on the road.

However, in order to pursue a "dram shop" liability claim, you must act quickly, because there are strict time limits.
