Tavern liability for drunk driver injuring others

 

In Colorado, a bar may be liable to a person that is injured (or to a person’s family if the accident is fatal).  To recover, in general, the injured party must demonstrate that the tavern willfully and knowingly sold or served alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person or to a minor.  C.R.S. § 12-47-801. The statute of limitations is generally only one year from the date of the accident.  C.R.S. § 12-47-801.
