Alcohol-Related Accidents and Injuries

When an intoxicated person causes an injury -- whether through a drunk driving accident or some other kind of mishap -- it can open the door to a number of legal issues.

Let's say Dale is drunk and he rear-ends Patty's car at a red light. Patty obviously has a personal injury case against Dale. But what if Dale was falling-down drunk at the Third Party Bar, and the bartender kept serving him anyway?
