Block on Trump's Asylum Ban Upheld by Supreme Court
College parties have certainly been known to occasionally get out of control.
A spring-break party near the University of California, Santa Barbara earlier this year turned ugly when a campus police officer tried to arrest a partygoer...but ended up with 44 injuries and more than 100 arrests, reports The Associated Press.
If you're injured at a college party, can you sue?
Party-related injuries typically fall within the purview of personal injury law. This includes the classic slip and fall injuries, such as people who may slip on beer-soaked floors or fall through shoddily constructed, non-permitted balconies.
But personal injury suits can also seek recovery for any other types of negligent behavior that results in physical injury, such as allowing an underage girl to consume a dangerous amount of alcohol at a fraternity party.
A personal injury suit can be brought against one or multiple defendants. In some cases, it might not be clear who is responsible for your injury. In others, multiple parties may have shared responsibility.
These may include:
If you're injured at a party, a personal injury attorney can help explain your legal options and advise you on how best to proceed with a personal injury lawsuit.
