    The law also recognizes the right to injury related compensation in those instances where the injuries are caused by service of alcohol to minors or persons who are under the legal drinking age.

    Tragically, there are times when the service of alcohol to persons who are under the legal drinking age, results in either serious injuries or death to either the under age person or other innocent parties. In these instances, there may be liability and there may be insurance or other compensation available to help pay for things such as medical bills, lost wages, loss of earning capacity, pain and suffering as well as funeral expenses.

    According to the Center for Disease Control:

    According to the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism: Underage drinking is a serious public health problem in the United States. Alcohol is the most widely used substance of abuse among America’s youth, and drinking by young people poses enormous health and safety risks.

    The consequences of underage drinking can affect everyone—regardless of age or drinking status. We all feel the effects of the aggressive behavior, property damage, injuries, violence, and deaths that can result from underage drinking. This is not simply a problem for some families—it is a nationwide concern.

    According to the United States Department of Transportation: National Highway Traffic Safety Advisory Board, crashes are still the leading cause of teen deaths and there were 3.255 teenage drivers (age 15 to 19) involved in fatal crashes in 2017.
