Claiming damages after being injured at a party

| Aug 15, 2018 | Premises Liability |

When you are present on another person’s property as a welcome visitor or as a guest, the owner of the premises has the duty to do whatever is reasonably necessary in order to keep you safe. This holds true for house parties that are held at a home. It is true that when alcohol is involved, parties can become hazardous. However, the host of the party and the premises owner must ensure that everyone is kept safe and that those who are intoxicated do not have further access to alcohol on the premises in order to avoid potential injuries.

Injuries that occur at a house party may cause significant damages, physically, emotionally and financially. It is possible that such injuries will lead to significant medical bills. In addition, the injured person may suffer from lost wages due to needing to take unpaid leave in order to recover from his or her injuries.

Who is legally liable for an injury at a house party?

In the state of Arizona, social host liability laws are in place for minors. This means that any social host aged 18 or over who provides alcohol on a premises for consumption by a person under the age of 18 can be held legally liable. However, just because they can be held liable for the unlawful consumption of alcohol, it does not mean that they will be responsible for any injuries that occur as a result. Any injuries that occur will be the responsibility of the premises owner.

If you have been injured at a party in the state of Arizona, you may be able to make a legal claim for damages that you suffered.
