With Christmas and New Years just around the corner, many people are starting to plan holiday parties. With that in mind, it's appropriate to think about the risks tied to a party, particularly when alcohol is served. What's the potential liability if someone attends your work party, or a party in your home, and then causes an injury in a drunk driving accident?
It happens to even the most conscientious drivers-you get a speeding ticket. Often, it's because you're driving in an unfamiliar part of town and you're not certain what the speed limit is. At other times, it can simply be a product of distracted driving-you're trying to get the kids in the back seat to behave or you're thinking about everything you have to do when you get to your destination. It's easy to get caught up in the flow of traffic and be the one who gets pulled over, even though everyone else is speeding.
