A drunk driver who causes a serious or fatal accident will typically face two separate types of court cases. First, they will face a criminal trial for either vehicular manslaughter or assault. The second type of case is a civil case for personal injury or wrongful death. Sometimes the driver is not the only one at fault, third-party liability occurs when businesses providing alcohol are negligent to its customers. Some states have laws that charge liability to bars, clubs, restaurants, or hotels that improperly supply alcohol. In some state not taking care to serve someone who is obviously too drunk can leave the business at liability for the accident as well.
