The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reports that in 2012, more than 10,000 people died in alcohol-impaired driving crashes. That calculates to one person killed in a drunk driving accident every 51 minutes.
No person has a right to put the safety of others at risk by drunk driving. If you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk driver, contact an experienced personal injury attorney at Loughlin FitzGerald, P.C. We are committed to holding drunk drivers accountable for the injuries they have caused.
We represent clients throughout Connecticut in drunk driving and DUI accident claims. We also handle dram shop claims and social host liability claims. Dram shop claims involve the liability of a liquor serving establishment for serving alcohol to people who are visibly intoxicated. Social host liability refers to a social host being held liable for a drunk driving accident if he or she should have known a guest was intoxicated and allowed the guest to leave.

Protect Your Rights
Do not make the mistake of assuming that you have a simple case because the driver who caused your accident was intoxicated. The drunk driver will likely be defended by an experienced insurance defense lawyer. Attorneys for the insurance companies handle these claims on a routine basis and are very skilled at denying liability and minimizing damages. You will need an experienced and dedicated attorney on your side who is committed to protecting your rights.
Our team of skilled personal injury lawyers has more than 100 years of combined experience. Several of our attorneys formerly worked as insurance defense attorneys, so we know how to anticipate defenses that may be raised by opposing counsel and build strong cases for our clients.
Our personal injury attorneys place an emphasis on achieving the best results with the least inconvenience to our clients by engaging in early settlement discussions and by revisiting such discussions later as cases progress. As a result, we are often able to expedite the process of obtaining fair settlements for our clients. When it is necessary to fight for our clients in the courtroom, we offer a team of experienced and skilled trial lawyers. As a client of our firm, you will have a strong advocate on your side.
