Liability for drunk driving claims will fall on the intoxicated driver who caused the crash. The driver will likely be responsible for not only civil damages, but may face criminal penalties as well.
Unlike other states with dram shop laws, Kentucky does not allow individuals to pursue a legal claim against social hosts. This means that individuals cannot file lawsuits against bars, restaurants, or other vendors for providing alcohol to a drunk driver who ends up causing a crash.
