There are certain laws on the Georgia books that impose a degree of liability on businesses that serve alcohol to guests. The law’s purview, which is called “dram shop liability,” includes instances in which alcohol is sold or provided to someone who’s underage with the knowledge that person would be driving, and in instances in which alcohol is sold or given to a person in a “state of noticeable intoxication” with the knowledge that person would be driving.
This liability can extend to:
- Liquor stores;
- Bars; and
- Event hosts.
