Drink drivers who cause accidents face both criminal and civil liability for their actions. Furthermore, the Illinois Transportation Department will revoke that person’s driver’s license.
Sometimes, drunk driving accident victims can sue the business or entity that sold alcohol to the driver. To recover from the party that provided the alcohol, it is necessary to show that alcohol was knowingly given to a visibly intoxicated person.
