How, if at all, does the statute of limitations apply in civil suits against an establishment that serves alcohol?
  1. It doesn’t apply at all, since the establishment can be sued at any time.
  2. It applies only when a victim of an alcohol-related incident is looking to sue for an amount over $100,000.
  3. Victims of an alcohol-related incident cannot file suit until at least one year after the incident.
  4. Depending on the location of the alcohol-related incident, victims may no longer be able to file suit once a certain period of time has passed.
Answer: D - Due to the statute of limitations, the victims of a drunk driving or other alcohol-related incident may not be able to sue after a certain amount of time has passed, usually between one and six years.

The precise amount of time under the statute of limitations depends on the state you work in. But don’t count on the statute of limitations to prevent you or your employers from being sued - the victims of incidents stemming from intoxication often do not wait long to start talking to lawyers. It’s much better to just follow all of the applicable liquor laws and avoid these situations altogether.
