For more info visit newsinfusion**** May 20, 2010 - Graduation is a time for celebrating a milestone and looking forward to the next phase of life, but what most people don’t realize is that graduation parties can introduce a host of potential legal problems for parents and teens. So as graduation season approaches and parents across the country prepare for parties honoring their son or daughter’s achievements, they should know the potential legal risks associated with hosting such events. What if your teen asks you to supply some booze? What if someone drives drunk? What if there’s an accident on your property? Can you be held responsible as the homeowner and as the host? Renowned attorney, Gloria Allred, is available to address these questions and talk about the risks that face parents and teens during graduation celebrations. In fact, as more and more states enact social host liability laws, which hold individuals hosting parties responsible for underage drinking and accidents that occur on his/her property, Allred can also offer the dos and don’ts and provide tips on how parents can protect themselves and their kids. In interviews on May 20, 2010, she will discuss: · Alcohol-related Accidents: According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2,395 teens died last year in car crashes associated with alcohol consumption. The criminal and civil charges you open yourself up to if you serve alcohol to a minor; and how you could be held responsible for any accident that occurs on and off your property. · Protecting guests: How a dilapidated deck or a cracked roof could land you on the receiving end of a lawsuit · Protecting yourself: The type of insurance you must have to protect yourself and the precautions you must take before you even open your doors to guests.
