Although we do it every day, driving a car is an incredibly complex task that requires complete focus to be accomplished safely. Unfortunately, because it is such a routine task, many people take a cavalier attitude toward driving and routinely engage in conduct that compromises their ability to react to road conditions. Just because this conduct is common does not mean it is right.
Those who cause accidents due to distraction or intoxication are liable for the resulting injuries. At the Law Office of Ann Halan Brickley, LLC, our New Canaan personal injury attorney uses her skills and experience to get to the bottom of these accidents and hold negligent drivers civilly accountable to the full extent of the law.
Drunk driving is a dangerous and illegal activity that places both the driver and other motorists at substantial risk. Nevertheless, thousands of people do it every year, ultimately leading to numerous vehicle accidents, injuries and deaths. In addition to the serious criminal penalties drunk driving can bring, it also creates a strong presumption of fault and liability when an inebriated driver is involved in a car accident.
Even these cases, however, may be far from certain for injured victims. Insurance companies may still argue that the defendant’s intoxication was not the legal cause of the accident or may try to minimize the victim’s injuries. It takes an experienced injury attorney to prove the facts necessary to hold the insurance company accountable.
