Liability for Drunk Driving Accidents in Pennsylvania

Guy D'Andrea helps the victims of drunk drivers get the financial compensation they deserve. He’s offered to share some input on the legal rights of DUI accident victims and their families in Pennsylvania:

According to the Pennsylvania Liquor Code, the victims of drunk drivers can recover financial compensation in two different ways. First, by filing a personal injury lawsuit against the drunk driver who caused the accident and injuries. However, the state’s dram shop laws also allow these victims to file lawsuits against businesses that sold or provided alcohol to the drunk driver, depending on specific circumstances.

In Pennsylvania, alcohol vendors like bars and nightclubs can be sued for when a customer causes an alcohol-related accident if that customer was served after they’d become visibly intoxicated. Additionally, any violation of the state’s liquor code is considered “negligence per se”, meaning that there are many different liquor code violations that may be considered grounds for a dram shop lawsuit.

If you or someone you love was hit by a drunk driver and you’re curious about your legal options, you can learn more by speaking with an experienced DUI victims lawyer.
