Social Host Liability
Serving or providing alcohol to minors in any capacity is illegal and can bring a variety of serious consequences; however, these consequences can become severer when the minor causes injuries or property damage to another party or that party’s property. In these instances, the person who provided the alcohol to the minor may be found to be legally liable for associated costs. Thus, when you have suffered any loss or personal injury as a result of an auto accident with an intoxicated minor, you may be able to pursue compensation from both the driver and the social host.
The ramifications of a car accident can be extremely devastating and when the actions of other people have caused your suffering, they should be held liable. Speak with a Lake Geneva social host liability attorney of Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. by calling 800-242-2874.
What They Can Be Held Liable For
When a minor injures another person in a car accident while under the influence, social host liability allows any person who has knowingly served alcohol to them to be held responsible for any costs that incurred as a result of that accident. If you have suffered due to an underage drunk driver, you may be able to pursue compensation for certain costs, including:
- Property damage
- Vehicle repair
- Medical bills
- Emotional suffering
- Loss of wages
- Loss of quality of life
