Who is Responsible for Drunk Driving Accidents

A number of parties may be held responsible for drunk driving accidents, including:

  • Drivers: Drunk drivers are of course responsible for their own behavior if they injure someone while driving intoxicated or under the influence of a controlled substance
  • Hosts: People who host parties where alcohol is served can be held liable in the event a guest causes a drunk driving accident, especially if the host was known to provide alcohol to the guest after he or she was clearly intoxicated.
  • Bar/Restaurant Staff & Owners: Bar and restaurant owners and employees can also be held responsible for drunk driving accidents. It is their responsibility to stop serving patrons that appear to be intoxicated.
