$750,000 Settlement – Dram Shop/Social Host Claim

We obtained a policy limits settlement for a Gwinnett County couple injured by an underaged drunk driver. Plaintiffs were driving home on a two-lane road when an 20-year-old in an SUV crossed the centerline and struck their vehicle head-on. The SUV driver was several times over the legal blood alcohol limit. Our investigation revealed that the driver had been at a house party consuming alcohol with friends. Plaintiffs were able to obtain policy limits from automobile insurance and from the party host’s insurance policy under the Georgia Dram Shop Act.
