Car accidents are frightening and frustrating events, but when caused by a drunk driver, they can be especially traumatic.

Social Host Liability Specifics
In Wisconsin, people that host social gatherings can be held liable if they allow minors to become intoxicated then leave the party and operate a motor vehicle. Wisconsin social host liability laws state that it is illegal to:
- Purchase or provide alcohol to anyone under the age of 21
- Knowingly serve alcohol to minors in a home or as the host of a function
Anyone who purposefully disregards these laws may be considered an instigator of criminal activity. There is no excuse for negligence that allows minors to drink and drive.
If you or someone you love has been the victim of a drunk driving accident caused by an intoxicated minor, you may be able to take legal action against the driver as well as the social host.
