Country Club Who Served Drunk Driver Responsible For Death of Person Killed by Drunk Driver

A Texas jury held a country club also responsible for the death of a man killed by a drunk driver who the country club had continued to serve alcohol  despite the patron being drunk. The country club continued to sell six beers to a former high school football star after he played nine holes of golf.  The patron had arrived at the golf club already intoxicated and the country club employees still sold him additional beer.

The patron then got in his car and struck another motorist head on, killing the innocent driver.  The man killed was a father of three, an inventor of medical devices and a Sunday school teacher.

In Ohio like, Texas, sellers and servers of alcohol can be held responsible for injuries and death caused by intoxicated patrons  if the seller serves alcohol to an obviously intoxicated patron or serves an underaged person.  These laws are put in place to protect the general public.

Places that serve or sell alcohol must have procedures in place to refuse patrons who appear to have had too much to drink.  They must also provide training so employees can identify patrons who have had too much to drink and deal with them effectively.
