Indianapolis Social Host Liability Attorneys
Preventing drunk driving accidents is a communal responsibility. All individuals and institutions that are in a position to provide an individual with alcohol must do so carefully and safely. When accidents take place because a visibly intoxicated person was provided with additional alcohol, those who provided this additional alcohol need to be held accountable for their irresponsible actions.
Some states have made impressive steps forward to punish those who allow people to become dangerously intoxicated. One measure that has been enacted in many states, including Indiana, is a law known as “social host liability”. This law states that if a person (or group of people) is throwing a party at a private residence and provides alcohol to a person who is clearly intoxicated, or to a minor, the hosts can be held responsible for any accidents or injuries caused by the intoxicated individual.

Laws like social host liability laws are important in reducing the number of drunk drivers on the road, and therefore, reducing the number of drunk driving accidents and fatalities. However, these laws are will not help prevent future drunk driving accidents unless the victims of drunk driving accidents and the families of these victims bring charges against those responsible for a given accident.
