If you have been involved in a car accident with a motorist who was under the influence of alcohol, you may be able to take civil action against more parties than just the driver. In fact, in certain circumstances, you may be able to file a lawsuit against the bar or restaurant that served alcohol to the driver before he or she was involved in the accident. Under the dram shop liability laws in the state of Wisconsin, a dram shop can be held liable for an accident if they knowingly serve alcohol to a minor or an individual under the legal drinking age of 21.
Suffering injuries in a car accident because of an intoxicated driver can be devastating and affect every part of your life.
