Can Social Hosts Be Held Liable for the Actions of Drunk Drivers to Whom They Supplied Excessive Amounts of Alcohol?
In the state of Wisconsin, there are strict limitations on assigning liability to social hosts, and this action is only available when the drunk driver is a minor under the age of 21. In a situation in which the social hosts knowingly and willfully provides alcohol to someone they know to be underage, it may be possible to extend liability to the host if the minor causes a car accident. This legal strategy may be essential in helping you to recover the full compensation you need for your losses in an accident.
