Financial Compensation For Victims Injured By Drunk Drivers

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:

Usually, victims of drunk driving accidents can file personal injury lawsuits against the drivers. In addition to this, under certain circumstances, victims or their families may be able to sue the alcohol vendor who sold the driver alcohol prior to the crash.

This is known as a dram shop lawsuit and is only possible in states with dram shop laws. Pennsylvania’s dram shop laws state that victims 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.
