Q
How to I receive tripple damages, if I am the victim of a drunk driver in Norwich Connecticut?

A

If you are a victim of a drunk driver in Norwich, Connecticut, then here is some information you need to know.  In Connecticut, there is a special statute the allows for tripple damages when a drunk driver recklessly causes your injury.  In such a case you would have to prove that the drunk driver acked "recklessly."  But that is not very hard to prove.  At act of drunk driving in and of itself is reckess conduct, and therefore you should have no problem proving your case.  What is important here is that unless you know about this rule, you won't recover tripple damages because the insurance company for the defendant (the drunk driver) will probably not tell you of this status.  The statute is Connecticut General Statute, section 14-295.  Now, that you know of the rule, you can assert you rights, and receive the compensation you deserve.
