Pursuing Justice For Drunk Driving Accident Victims
When that driver made the decision to get behind the wheel drunk, he or she made the decision to put your life at risk. While the criminal justice system will likely punish that drunk driver, it won’t compensate you or your family for the cost of your injuries and suffering.

How Dram Shop Law And Social Host Liability May Affect Your Case
Oftentimes, a drunk driver is not the only party responsible for the crash. Our attorneys and investigators thoroughly examine the evidence, including the circumstances leading up to the drunk driving crash.
One component of our investigation is determining where the drunk driver consumed the alcohol. Under Pennsylvania law, a bar, restaurant or other commercial establishment may be held liable for negligent service of alcohol. This is true, for example, when alcohol is served to a minor or when alcohol is served to an individual who is already visibly intoxicated, and he or she subsequently causes a drunk driving accident.
In addition, Pennsylvania law recognizes social host liability when adults serve or provide alcohol to minors, which then results in injuries to the minors or others.
If our investigation reveals that, prior to causing the crash, the drunk driver was over-served at a bar, restaurant, nightclub or other establishment when exhibiting visible signs of intoxication, or if a minor was provided alcohol by a responsible adult, our attorneys will vigorously pursue this angle of the case to maximize financial recovery for you.
