Liquor liability issues arise when an individual who was injured by a drunk driver or intoxicated individual alleges that an establishment furnished alcohol to the alleged intoxicated person (AIP) knowing that person was visibly intoxicated. In Indiana, even the AIP himself may have a claim against the business that served him alcohol if his own intoxication was a cause of his injury. These are serious legal issues and can put the future of a business in jeopardy if not defended by competent and experienced defense attorneys.
