Social Host Liability
The person who hosts the party has an obligation to make sure that everyone is safe. If injuries arise from serving alcohol, the host might be responsible. However, social host liability laws vary from state to state.
If the holiday party is hosted at a building or hotel, they might be liable for your injuries. After all, they have to make sure that their facility is safe. If they fail to keep the property safe, they will be at fault for premises liability.
