Connecticut limits the amount that can be recovered from a bar that over-serves a patron to $250,000. These types of cases are often brought in tandem with motor vehicle negligence claims. We have however had success in piercing that cap where the injury or death occurs in Connecticut but the bar/restaurant is located out of state.

*$1,800,000 A major restaurant chain paid this to resolve this wrongful death case where one of their patrons struck a bicyclist in Connecticut after leaving their premises just over the border in New York. A toxicologist and alcohol service trainer (TIPS) were both hired to show that the patron must have consumed at least 8 beers at the restaurant prior to the fatal bike collision. Stratton Faxon, along with extremely supportive representatives from MADD, also represented the family during all of the criminal proceedings against the 22 year old driver who is now serving a 5 year sentence.

How to Use Case Builder

Case Builder contains two helpful categories: cases we are working on now and our past results. Case Builder is a novel concept. Our web designer said we should have this information fixed in a web page. We disagreed—thinking that just like our practice is always changing the case builder should be an ever-changing description of where we are right now—not last month or a year ago.
