Drunk drivers are the scourge of the roads, and must be stopped. I spoke with an emergency room doctor the other day who told me that for every drunk driver that gets cought there were hundreds that did not. His point, that drunk driving is a major epidemic. I represent many victims of drunk drivers in Groton, and all over Southestern Connecticut. Many never receive the compensation they deserve because the drunk driver did not carry enough insurance, and also becasue my client did not carry enough underinsured motorist coverage. In any case against a drunk driver the plaintiff should bring a claim under General Statute 14-295 seeking tripple damages for injuries. The caselaw is clear. The jury can assess triple damages. Don't expect the insurance adjuster to give you any information to help you assert your rigths. Now, that you know your rights, please remember if you are even a victim of a drunk driver, you have the rights to tripple damages.
