Legal Options Available to Victims Injured By Drunk Drivers in Pennsylvania
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of https://crimevictim.Attorney helps victims injured by drunk drivers receive the financial compensation they deserve. Mr. Kent has offered his knowledge about the legal options in Pennsylvania open to these victims and their families.
There are a couple of different lawsuits that may be available to victims injured by drunk drivers. One is a personal injury lawsuit against the driver who injured them. This type of lawsuit is available in all 50 states. The second type of lawsuit is known as a dram shop lawsuit and is available in most states, but not all. Pennsylvania’s dram shop laws allow victims of drunk driving accidents to file lawsuits against the alcohol vendor that served the drunk driver before the crash.
Pennsylvania’s dram shop laws state that licensed establishments are prohibited from serving or selling alcohol to those under the legal drinking age of 21. In addition, alcohol vendors are also prohibited from over-serving customers who are already visibly intoxicated. Therefore, if an alcohol vendor violates either of these laws and that patron then injures someone else, the victim may have grounds for a dram shop lawsuit against the vendor.
