The Liability of Parents Who Allow Minors To Drink Or Do Drugs At Home

Listen as Florida attorney Charlie Draper explains the liability of adults that let minors consume alcohol or drugs or drugs in their homes.

Imagine a parent allows a minor under the age of 21 to drink or take drugs, and as a consequence of these actions this teenager causes an accident or injures a third party. The parent is accountable in this situation.

The law in Florida prohibits selling, giving or serving alcohol or drugs to people under age 21. This is considered not only a crime, but it could be the basis in a civil action to obtain compensation for the wrongdoing of the adult who permitted a minor child to consume drugs or alcoholic beverages.

This statute is designed to protect minors who are still too immature to know the consequences of their actions. Watch the video to learn more.

Testimonials

I have engaged Draper Law Offices for three (3) different accidents.  My experience with this firm has been excellent each time, with positive results in my favor.  Charles Draper kept me informed throughout the process of each claim.  He was always available when ever I needed him to answer any questions.
 
The staff could not have been more courteous and helpful to me.  They never made me feel that I was bothering them (and I called quite a lot, believe me).  After a while they seemed like family.
 
I certainly would engage Draper Law Office (Charles Draper) if another problem would occur.
 
My recommendation to other people as to Draper Law Office would be “FIRST” on my list.
 
They are true and loyal to their clients.
 
I thank them from the bottom of my heart.
