Legal Options of Drunk Driving Crash Victims & Their Families in Indiana

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson of Wagner Reese represents drunk driving crash victims and their families in civil lawsuits. We’ve asked Jeff to add some thoughts on the legal rights of those who have been injured by drunk drivers and the families of those killed in Indiana drunk driving crashes:

The decision to drive drunk often leads to devastating consequences, including crashes that injure or kill innocent victims. These victims and the families of fatal crash victims deserve justice. In Indiana and many other states, these victims and families may have grounds for two types of lawsuits – one against the drunk driver and another against the alcohol vendor who served the driver before the crash.

Lawsuits against alcohol vendors are known as “dram shop” claims. Alcohol vendors can be held liable for drunk driving injuries and deaths in a dram shop claim if the vendor provided alcohol to someone who was intoxicated at the time and this intoxication was a foreseeable cause of the injuries suffered.
