A minor was killed after some of the alcohol vendors allegedly sold alcohol to underage drinkers at the Gulfport Music Festival last weekend. No one checked for proof of age in order to buy beer and beer was sold to the minors who attended the concert. Driving and minors don’t mix.
The family of the minor who was killed in the accident can make a claim against the alcohol vendors who sold alcohol to the minors which contributed to the car accident.Also, the promoter of the concert may be sued if you can prove he was in control or aware of the alcohol being sold to the minors.
My law firm handled a case similar to this one when some minors went to a Hank Williams Jr. concert in Memphis TN and alcohol was sold to the minors which contributed to a car wreck killing a young woman on her 18th birthday. We sued the alcohol providers, the concert promoter, the driver, the lawyer who let the statute of limitations run in TN, and other defendants involved in the concert. We were able to get a substantial settlement that was acceptable to the family of the woman killed in the accident.
