Legal Recourse For DUI Crash Victims in Colorado

Attorney contributor Dan Lipman has offered to weigh in with some thoughts on the legal options available to drunk driving accident victims in Colorado:

When an innocent victim is injured in an accident caused by the negligence of someone else, the victim often has legal recourse by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the negligent individual. But in some cases involving alcohol-related accidents, those who are injured and the families of those killed in the accident may also have the option to file a "dram shop" lawsuit, which allows third parties (such as alcohol vendors) to be held liable for alcohol-related injuries and deaths.

Colorado is one of many states with dram shop laws. According to Colorado's version of the dram shop law, businesses licensed to sell alcohol may be held liable for injuries and deaths suffered in alcohol-related accidents if they provided alcohol to the person who caused the accident, and that person was either:

  • under 21 years of age, or
  • visibly intoxicated at the time of the sale.

For example, let's say that Jerry goes to a bar, has several beers, and begins slurring his words and falling from his chair. Despite being visibly intoxicated, the bartender continues serving him additional drinks. Jerry then leaves the bar, drives, causes an accident, and seriously injures Brian. In addition to having grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against Jerry, Brian also may have the right to file a dram shop lawsuit against the bar for serving a visibly intoxicated person.

If you or someone you love has recently been injured or killed in an accident with a drunk driver, you can learn more about your legal options by speaking with an experienced DUI victims lawyer.
