It is the duty of the person serving alcohol to monitor the health and cognitive stability of his or her patrons. Serving alcohol to an intoxicated person is illegal. If that person leaves the establishment and injures another individual, the person who provided alcohol can be held accountable. We have handled cases involving many establishments, including:
- Night clubs
- Sports venues
- Hotel bars
If you were injured in an accident caused by a drunk driver, we will examine your accident to gain a clear understanding of all parties who were responsible for your injuries. Trust us to thoroughly investigate all aspects of your situation to develop the strongest case possible that leads us to a successful and efficient resolution.
It is important to note that if an individual provides alcohol to an underage person — even if money is not changing hands — it is considered an illegal sale of alcohol. There are many situations where a parent has alcohol available at a house party that is not protected from underage children. If these children drink the alcohol and then one of them causes a motor vehicle accident, it might be possible to hold the parent responsible for monetary damages. An experienced attorney can examine the facts of your situation and provide you with honest, educated advice about how you should proceed.
