Financial Compensation For Victims Of Drunk Driving Accidents in Indiana

Attorney Jeff Gibson helps victims of drunk driving accidents and their families secure the financial compensation they’re entitled to. Here is some insight from Jeff on the legal options available to these victims in Indiana:

In all 50 states, victims of drunk driving accidents may file for a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. However, in several other states, these victims may be able to file a dram shop lawsuit against the alcohol vendor who provided the driver alcohol prior to the crash.

Indiana’s dram shop laws say that alcohol vendors and social hosts can be held liable for injuries suffered in an alcohol-related accident if:

  • they provided alcohol to someone who was obviously intoxicated at the time, or
  • the intoxication was a foreseeable cause of the crash and of the subsequent injuries.
