You’ve seen it before: drinks flowing at your local bar on busy Saturday night. A patron who’s had too much leaves behind the wheel. If this person goes on to cause an accident, can the bar owner or bartender be held responsible for serving too much? What if it’s a house party, instead of a bar? The answer is, they might be.
Sit back and drink up this intoxicating subject as Steve and Rebecca use multi-state case law as real examples for when someone other than the inebriated party can be held responsible for a victims’ injuries. From dram shop laws creating liability for bar owners, to social host laws that do the same for homeowners, use this episode as one more reason to take the keys from your own guests who have had too much.
