Connecticut man faces charges in alleged hit and run

A 48-year-old Connecticut man is facing multiple charges after allegedly causing an accident and then leaving the scene without stopping. The charges against the man include driving while intoxicated, using a car without the owner's permission, failure to grant right of way, driving without a license and evading responsibility.

Relatives file suit against bars for serving drunk driver

Family members of a victim who died in an alleged drunk driving wreck have filed dram shop suits against five local bars that served alcohol to the at-fault driver. The Connecticut family filed the suit in late April, and they are seeking compensation from five bars in Norwalk, Westport and Fairfield. These establishments could be held liable for as much as $250,000 in damages because of their relationship to the drunk driving accident.

Alcohol believed to be a factor in crash involving Greenwich man

We call them drunk driving "accidents," but the reality is that intoxicated drivers make the decision to get behind the wheel despite the risk of hurting themselves and others. A crash can then lead to criminal charges and a claim of personal injury or wrongful death, and victims of drunk driving should be aware of their legal options for holding wrongdoers accountable.

Police: Driver intoxicated in crash that killed Bridgeport man

Under Connecticut law, drunk drivers and the bars or restaurants that served them can be held liable in civil court if the driver's actions caused another person's injuries. Proving liability can be a complex matter, though, and the families of victims often don't know where to turn, especially if their loved one died while riding in a car with an intoxicated driver.
