Legal Rights of People Hit By Drunk Drivers in PA

Hit by drunk driver lawyer, Brian Kent represents people who have been injured by drunk drivers and the families of those killed in drunk driving crashes. Here is some insight from Brian on the legal rights of drunk driving crash victims in Pennsylvania:

Generally, drunk drivers can be sued directly for damages they caused during an accident. Additionally, Pennsylvania and other states have dram shop laws, which allow alcohol vendors or social hosts to be sued for damages under certain conditions.

Under the Pennsylvania dram shop law, someone injured by a drunk driver, or a family member of someone who was killed by a drunk driver can sue an alcohol vendor, or a private social host, if they sell alcohol:

  • to a minor under 21, or
  • to a customer who was visibly overly intoxicated
