Birmingham Alcohol Injury Lawyers
Alabama offers more legal options than you may expect when your injuries are caused by an alcohol-related accident. Most people know that an intoxicated driver may be able to be held accountable through the legal system for causing injuries, but you also may be able to seek compensation from the person or organization that provided the alcohol to the driver.
Alabama takes very seriously the responsibility that goes along with selling or furnishing alcohol to others when they are visibly intoxicated. If you’ve been injured by an intoxicated person, you may have a claim for compensation from a:
- Grocery store
- Convenience Store
- Liquor store
- Private event
Further, drunk driving crashes aren’t the only alcohol-related scenario in which you might be able to obtain compensation for your injuries and other losses. You may have a case against the seller or provider of alcohol for other types of injuries caused by an intoxicated person.
