Legal Recourse for Drunk Driving Crash Victims in Indiana

Attorney Jeff Gibson helps victims of drunk driving accidents and their families secure the financial compensation they’re entitled to. Here is some insight from Jeff on the legal options available to these victims in Indiana:

Indiana is one of many states with dram shop laws. These laws allow the victims of drunk driving accidents to file lawsuits against third-party alcohol vendors who sold alcohol to someone who caused a crash. Indiana also allows private social hosts to be held liable for alcohol-related injuries under certain circumstances.

Indiana’s dram shop law states that alcohol vendors and social hosts can be held liable for injuries suffered in an alcohol-related accident if:

  • they provided alcohol to someone who was obviously intoxicated at the time, or
  • the intoxication was a foreseeable cause of the crash and of the subsequent injuries.
