Massachusetts Alcohol Liability Lawyer
Alcohol consumption can pose a number of different risks to the health and safety of others, particularly when intoxicated individuals choose to get behind the wheel. For this reason, it is important that those who provide alcohol to others act responsibly and do not allow intoxicated individuals to endanger the lives and wellbeing of others. In order to ensure that this responsibility is not neglected, Massachusetts has in place a range of alcohol liability laws to help injury victims pursue compensation from those responsible for playing a secondary role in the accident that harmed them.
Alcohol liability can extend to restaurant owners, bartenders, and even simply those hosting a private party. Whether their actions result in a drunk driving accident or injuries from assaults committed by intoxicated guests, those in this position may be held liable for any damages caused. For the many victims of accidents and incidents caused by another person’s intoxication in Massachusetts, the lawyers at Crowe & Mulvey, LLP, know how critical this compensation can be, especially when it comes to affording medical bills and covering for any lost wages.
