DWI and Car Accidents: Who Is Responsible When Drunk Drivers Cause Accident?


Car Accident Questions Answered by an Attorney with Nearly 25 Years of Legal Experience

When drunk individuals choose to drive and cause serious injuries and fatalities, victims and all of us are understandably enraged at drunk drivers’ negligence. But there are sometimes other parties that also play a role in drunk driving cases – bar and restaurant owners.

As legal providers of alcohol, New York bar and restaurant owners are legally obligated to ensure that patrons don’t over imbibe and cause accidents. When business owners fail to restrict alcohol consumption and accidents, injuries and fatalities results, they can often be held legally liable through a lawsuit under New York’s Dram Shop law.
