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