Taking Effective Action Against All Responsible Parties
Attorneys at McDowell & Osburn, P.A., regularly represent the victims of alcohol-related accidents. In addition to the harm caused by drunk drivers, people are injured as a result of adults hosting underage drinking parties, party hosts providing too much alcohol to adult guests, and bars providing too much alcohol to patrons.
Representative cases include:
- Claim against an adult host of underage alcohol party when an intoxicated teenager leaving party drove into a pedestrian, breaking her back.
- Claim against a bar when a drunk customer assaulted the victim with a beer bottle causing severe facial injuries.
- Claim against an after-concert host of drinking party when an obviously intoxicated guest left and drove over a motorcycle with his pick-up truck causing severe brain and other permanent injuries to the motorcyclist.
- Claim against large bar for conducting business in a manner that encouraged excessive drinking and driving when, after being placed on notice of the problem, the bar refused to change its business practices and a patron passed out while driving on the highway with his cruise control engaged in excess of 65 miles per hour causing severe accident and injuries to others on the highway.
- Claim against a bar when, after ejecting problem patrons, it did nothing to keep problem patrons from waiting in the parking lot to attack and severely injure other people later leaving the bar.
