Legal Recourse For Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents

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. Brian has provided some information on the legal rights of drunk driving crash victims in Pennsylvania:

Every state allows victims injured in drunk driving accidents, or family members of victims killed in drunk driving accidents, to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. However, these victims may have another legal option available to them.

In many states, dram shop laws exist which allow victims injured by drunk drivers to file a lawsuit against the alcohol vendor who served the driver prior to the crash. In Pennsylvania, the dram shop law states that a victim injured by a drunk driver may be able to sue an alcohol vendor or social host if:

  • they provided alcohol to a minor under the age of 21, or
  • they sold alcohol to a customer who was visibly overly intoxicated.
