Drunk Driving and Accident Liability
Car accidents involving alcohol are typically disastrous. Unfortunately, the people who suffer the most severe consequences are often the innocent victims. People may suffer from painful injuries, permanent disabilities, or the loss of loved ones following a drunk driving accident.
When a drunk driving accident occurs, there are a number of parties who could be held liable for damages incurred by the victim. Depending on the scenario, liability may fall solely on the intoxicated driver, or it may be shared by a bartender who over-served him or her. If the intoxicated driver is a minor, the adult who supplied alcohol to him or her may be partially liable for the accident.
