The damage left in the wake of an intoxicated driver is frequently the responsibility of both the drunk driver and the bar or establishment which allowed the drunk driver to reach that condition. In Minnesota it is against the law to serve alcohol (beer, mixed drinks, wine or other alcoholic beverage) to an obviously intoxicated person, a minor or conduct an after-hours sale. All of these are deemed illegal sales. Minnesota bars are required to carry liquor liability insurance as a condition of obtaining their beverage license. If the collision resulted in a death, this may also result in a wrongful death claim, requiring the appointment of a Wrongful Death Trustee. Consequently, the appointment of a Trustee is an issue that you need to discuss with a trusted, experienced trial attorney, at your very earliest opportunity. The legal issues are complex; consult an attorney. Call us today at 763-682-1082.
