What Is The Indiana Lifeline Law?

Steve Wagner

The Lifeline Law is an effort to reach out to teenagers and underage drinkers who have a friend who may be in trouble. The Lifeline Law states that no matter your age, if you are calling to report a friend who may be sick or in danger because of the use of alcohol, you will be given immunity for any underage drinking you were participating in.

College campuses across Indiana are making efforts to make students aware of this law, blasting social media and text messaging campaigns in order to reach out to those who are involved in underage partying. The hope is that through repetition, the intent of the law will be seen in a positive manner, and students who have friends who may be at risk will not have to choose between helping their friends or getting into trouble for their own actions.

While we encourage all students to avoid participation in underage alcohol consumption, if you choose to drink, please do so responsibly. If someone you are with gets sick from alcohol poisoning or becomes a victim of assault or other dangers, please call 911. Do not be afraid of negative repercussions. If you have questions about the law, or wish to discuss a potential case with us, our personal injury lawyers are here to assist you.
