Some of the most fun we will have in our lives involves a drink or two to lighten the mood. In our early 20’s that may involve going out and drinking with friends, playing a game of pool, darts or shuffle board. Any time you’re at a bar or nightclub you will usually see someone who can barely talk or walk leaving; obvious to the rest of us that they had a few too many drinks. We may even take a tour of that microbrewery everyone’s been talking about that gives out free samples. It always seems as if there’s one person in that tour that has a few too many samples, falls down and gets hurt. You may have even gone to that block party a few blocks over, you see them there too, the people who were just going to have a drink or two. Well, that may have been the intention when it started out. However, some of us in our society take it too far; drinking too much and that often involves someone getting hurt.
Liquor Liability is the liability a business or person has once they serve, sell or manufactures alcohol. A person who ingests alcohol and subsequently gets into an accident with property damage, personal injury or even a DUI may go back to where the liquor came from as part of their suit or claim for damages. If there are multiple injuries or property damages there may be more than one case.
In a drunk driving case or any other case that arises due to excess alcohol consumption at bars, restaurants, night clubs, liquor stores – even a private person’s home there can be liability for a person who drank there. Depending on who served the alcohol; a private residence owner or business owner, you may have a bigger payout.
What this means for you, whether you are the person who caused the accident or the person who suffered damages from the accident (both in some cases). Is that you better have the best liquor liability lawyer you can get.
