Another Case Of A Family Suing A Bar That Served The Fatal Drinks

A family in Kentucky lost five members and the individual who caused the crash
also died. His blood alcohol was over three times the legal limit. 
With no recourse, the Kentucky family sued the bar that served the 
drinks which brought the driver over the limit.

This case presents a fundamental question about responsibility. Should 
an establishment be held liable for the actions of another? Are bars and 
restaurants to require patrons to submit to a breathalyzer to order 
another drink?

The State of California does not believe so, and, so far, neither does 
its legislature. Many other states have similar views. After all, we 
must be responsible when we drink, especially when we are in public and 
must get home. If we all obeyed the very simple laws we have in place 
about impaired driving, thousands of lives would be saved every year. If 
you live in Burlington, Essex, Colchester, Winooski, Williston, 
Shelburne or anywhere in the State of Vermont, and have been arrested or 
charged with DUI or any crime, call Handy Law for aggressive and 
experienced legal defense.
