Nowhere in the country is it legal to sell booze to minors, and it's certainly not legal for anyone - under 21 or otherwise - to get behind the wheel of a vehicle while intoxicated.
Yet it happens all the time, often resulting in serious injury or even death. As Vero Beach personal injury lawyers, the question we often ask in this cases, beyond the obvious fault of the drunken driver, is whether a third party may be liable for providing the alcohol in the first place.
Like most states, Florida has something called a "Dram Shop Act." Florida Statute 768.125 allows for third-party liability in drunk driving cases if that third party unlawfully sold or furnished a minor alcohol or knowingly served alcohol to a person who is "habitually addicted" to alcohol.
