What Should You Do After A Car Accident?

Over-serving of Alcohol

Posted on June 4th, 2009 No Comments

Alcohol has a proven reputation for decreasing individuals’ abilities to reason and judge situations effectively. It creates an unfortunate snowball effect, where a person believes that he or she is able to consume more alcohol, which in turn further affects his or her judgment. In many cases, the person responsible for stopping this cycle is the person serving the alcohol.

If that person fails to live up to his / her responsibility, severe injury can result, both to the drinker and those around him or her. If you or a loved one has been injured in such a situation, contact Jacksonville over-serving of alcohol attorney Donald Guthrie at 904-296-1088.

Alcohol-Related Injuries

Every person has a responsibility to monitor his or her own alcohol intake and prevent themselves from becoming intoxicated and harming others. However, those who are profiting from other’s consumption of alcoholic beverages have a responsibility to prevent the types of injuries that may result from the overconsumption of alcohol, including:

Alcohol poisoning, which may result in brain damage or death
Property damage resulting from disorderly behavior
Car accidents caused by persons driving while intoxicated
Personal injury suffered from aggressive behavior caused by alcohol

Depending on the jurisdiction, those responsible for serving alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person may be considered liable for the behavior of those they have served. An experienced Jacksonville personal injury lawyer can help determine the extent of liability.
