Alcohol-Related Injuries

When others are irresponsible, we’ll help you set things right

Adults who choose to drink alcohol have an obligation to do so responsibly. When drinkers become irresponsible, serious injuries can result. Drunk driving is perhaps the most infamous cause of alcohol-related injuries, but it’s far from the only one. Alcohol is often involved in hunting accidents, recreational injuries and domestic violence cases.

If an establishment supplies alcohol to an individual who is clearly intoxicated and that person goes on to cause an alcohol related injury, the establishment may be held responsible. Such personal injury cases are referred to as “dram shop cases” – “dram shop” was a name historically given to bars, taverns or other providers of alcohol who sold their wares by the dram. Other cases involve providing alcohol to an under-aged person, whether in a commercial setting or a private residence.

Regardless of whether the alcohol was obtained legally or illegally, alcohol-related injuries can be severe. Victims of alcohol-related injuries can suffer broken bones, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries and, in some cases, permanent disabilities. You may have even lost a loved one in an alcohol-related incident.
