Madison Social Host Liability Lawyers

Under Wisconsin state law it is illegal for private individuals to serve alcohol to minors, and it is only allowed in very specific situations such as when their parents are with them.  Despite the fact that it is against the law, many people choose to serve minors alcohol, which contributes to Wisconsin’s higher than average underage drinking.  In certain cases, drivers who have been in a wreck with a drunk minor who was served alcohol at a non-commercial venue may be able to seek compensation from the person who furnished the minor with alcohol.

Stipulations of Social Host Liability

When an individual serves a minor alcohol in a non-commercial capacity, that person may be deemed at least partially liable for any injuries or damaged caused by the intoxicated minor.  A few of the conditions for this kind of liability are:

  • The individual served alcohol to a person identified as a minor
  • Although the consumer was not clearly a minor, they should have been identified as such
  • The minor was served alcohol while unaccompanied by their parents
  • The individual provided money to minors to purchase and consume alcohol

Given the variety of concerns that can arise after a car accident of this nature, financial compensation can be critical to helping an accident victim to obtain all necessary medical care, vehicle repair costs, and other fair payment in recognition of their suffering.
