Can a bar restaurant or liquor store be held responsible if alcohol is sold or given to a minor? | Metnick, Levy & Dyson | Let Us Be Your Solution | 1-(800) MYATTORNEY | | 15300 Jog Road, Suite 103, Delray Beach, Florida 33446 | (561)498-9979 Yes, if the minor is served with alcohol by a bar and then consumes that alcohol and gets involved in an accident, the bar may be held responsible when the bar willfully sold the alcohol to the minor and knows that the person is a minor as opposed to somebody over the age of 21. The bar may have a limited defense in certain circumstances where claims that the minor presented the bar with a fake identification or had somebody else purchase the alcohol for them.
