Immediate Answers to Your New Haven Motor Vehicle Accident Questions

Posted by Richard P. Hastings | Dec 23, 2011 | 0 Comments

A New Haven Motor Vehicle Accident can ruin you physically, emotionally and economically. Who will pay your bills? How do you go about getting your lost wages? How much money are you entitled to receive for your injuries? How do you prove your case? Who is responsible for your injuries? What insurance coverage is available to you?

These circumstances create very difficult times that require immediate answers.

There are basically two types of negligence that can be utilized to establish fault: common law negligence, which is codified or defined in Connecticut case law; and statutory law, which sets forth law established in the Connecticut General Statutes.

In order to establish liability or fault you might show that the defendant violated the following statute:

Sec. 14-227a. Operation while under the influence of liquor or drug or

while having an elevated blood alcohol content. (a) Operation while under the influence or while having an elevated blood alcohol content. No person shall operate a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or any drug or both. A person commits the offense of operating a motor vehicle while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or any drug or both if such person operates a motor vehicle (1) while under the influence of intoxicating liquor or any drug or both, or (2) while such person has an elevated blood alcohol content. For the purposes of this section, "elevated blood alcohol content" means a ratio of alcohol in the blood of such person that is eight-hundredths of one per cent or more of alcohol, by weight, and "motor vehicle" includes a snowmobile and all-terrain vehicle, as those terms are defined in section 14-379.
