Many drunk driving accidents are caused by negligent drivers that have left local taverns or bars. Accidents of this nature may also be due to the negligence of the establishment that continued to serve the driver alcohol well after they became intoxicated. When someone is over-served, they can pose a significant threat to everyone around them, and should they cause an accident, everyone at fault needs to be held responsible.
When a drunk driver causes motor vehicle accidents, there may be multiple parties at fault. Certainly the person that chose to drive drunk is directly responsible for any injuries or damages, but the establishment that served the alcohol could also be held legally responsible.
The law allows third parties injured due to a drunken person’s negligence to sue the owner/operator of the bar or restaurant where that person was drinking, as long as it can be shown that the individual continued to receive alcohol after he or she was “visibly intoxicated.”
