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.
