That would depend on the situation, and that is when it’s very important for you to go ahead and immediately hire an attorney, because that attorney can investigate where that person got intoxicated, and things such as if that person was over-served and if that business has some liability for over-serving that person. That’s why it’s very important that you immediately contact an attorney who has knowledge about these types of cases.
We at Banks and Jones have handled many cases involving people being injured by intoxicated drivers, and then when we begin investigating the case, we find out that they may have been over-served by some establishment and that establishment can have some liability.
If you find yourself in this situation and you’re in the Knoxville area or any of the surrounding counties in East Tennessee, please feel free to call us at Banks and Jones. We can be reached at 865-546-2141 or at BanksAndJones.com.
