Confidential Settlement

Circuit Court of Clay County Settlement of $460,000.  Plaintiff’s 20 year old son was killed when the pickup truck in which he was a passenger crashed.  The Plaintiff’s son riding in the truck with another 20 year old male driving.  Earlier, the driver of the pickup truck had purchased a 24 pack of beer at a convenience store. The complaint alleged that the clerk at the convenience store did not check the driver’s identification yet allowed him to purchase the alcohol in violation of the laws of the State of Alabama.  The underage driver of the truck consumed a large quantity of the beer, became intoxicated, and crashed his truck, killing his passenger.  Although the store clerk denied selling the alcohol, the driver of the truck, who survived the crash, testified under oath that he had purchased the beer from the convenience store.  The lawsuit was brought under Alabama’s Civil Damages Act, which allows a parent to sue a retail outlet that illegally sells alcohol if their child is injured or killed as a result of that illegal sale.
