Liquor Liability Laws: You Need to Act Quickly
In addition to suing drunk drivers who cause accidents, victims may also be able to file suit against the bar where the driver became intoxicated. This is called “dram shop” liability – but you need to act quickly.
In Connecticut, you have only 120 days after the drunk driving accident to notify the dram shop that you intend to sue. In legal terms, this is not a lot of time. Without a CT or RI drunk driving injury lawyer representing you, the criminal investigation of the drunk may make it difficult to uncover the name of the bar.
Even if you do not choose our Waterford – New London, CT personal injury law firm, it’s important that you hire a drunk driving accident injury lawyer in CT or RI as soon as you can. You do not want to miss the 120–day deadline.
