Who Can You Sue For Injuries Caused by a Drunk Driver in Colorado?

Attorney contributor Dan Lipman helps people recover the financial compensation they need after being injured in crashes caused by drunk drivers. Dan has some information to share regarding lawsuits for drunk driving injuries in Colorado:

When a drunk driver causes a crash that injures others, those injured are often saddled with serious financial and personal difficulties. These difficulties often require financial compensation.

A personal injury lawsuit can be filed against the drunk driver but this is not always the only type of lawsuit available. In Colorado and many other states, a dram shop lawsuit may also be available. Dram shop lawsuits are filed against alcohol vendors that served a drunk driver before a crash.

According to Colorado's dram shop law, an alcohol vendor can be sued in a dram shop lawsuit for injuries caused by a customer if the vendor served a customer who was either visibly intoxicated or under 21 years of age.
