If you have been injured by a drunk driver, it is vital that you contact one of our Hartford personal injury lawyers as soon as possible. Why? – because not only is the drunk driver liable for your injuries and losses, but the establishment that served the alcohol to the drunk driver. You have 120 days to put the dram shop on written notice of your intention of filing a claim against it. If written notice is not given within the 120 days, you will be prohibited from bringing a dram shop claim against the establishment.
