Liquor Liability

Alcohol consumption is a regular part of life for many Connecticut residents.  Unfortunately alcohol is also the primary cause of dozens of accidents and injuries each year.  The Connecticut laws surrounding liquor liability are extremely complex.  There may be several avenues of recovery, including from the individual or entity who provided liquor to the intoxicated person.  Under the Connecticut Dram Shop Act, you may be able to recover from the individual, bar or liquor store if they furnished the alcohol to an already intoxicated person who then caused serious injury or death while intoxicated.

If you or someone you love has been injured by a drunk driver or in another alcohol related incident, it is important that you consult an attorney as soon as possible because the deadlines for notice and bringing claims are short.  Delay in bringing a claim may also limit your potential remedies.

At Cooper Sevillano, our attorneys have significant experience bringing liquor liability claims including under the Connecticut Dram Shop Act.

We will explore all potential avenues of recovery to maximize your compensation.  An important part of our firm’s mission is to make our communities safer places.  Part of this commitment involves doing whatever it takes to prevent future harm.  We will aggressively pursue cases against those who provide liquor to intoxicated individuals to ensure that you and your family receive the compensation you deserve and all responsible parties are held accountable.
