Social Host Responsibility
In most cases, social hosts in Texas are not responsible for guests who drink too much at their home, even when there is a car accident that kills or injures someone. However, there are exceptions — one being when a host serves alcohol to minors or when a host takes someone’s car keys and returns them to an intoxicated guest.
At Leonard B. Gabbay, P.C. in Austin, Texas, we represent the victims of drunk drivers. In seeking compensation for our clients, we will not stop at holding the drunk driver accountable. When allowed under Texas law, we will also go after social hosts and liquor establishments that serve alcohol to minors and intoxicated adults.
