Holding Bars And Restaurants Accountable For Serving Too Much Booze
Any establishment selling liquor is referred to as a dram shop. This can include a bar, liquor store, restaurant or club. While many of these establishments promote consumption of alcohol through happy hours and other specials, they can over-serve patrons, then allowing them to drive. If a driver injures someone in a DUI accident after leaving the bar or restaurant, the establishment can also be held liable for damages.
If you or a loved one has been seriously injured as a result of dram shop liability, it is important that you are afforded all needed compensation to heal and that accountability is bolstered.
“The civil justice system is one of the most important mechanisms for holding a negligent party accountable. These cases require an attorney who understands how to prosecute the criminal side of the case, to maximize the amount of compensation for injuries.” Attorney Jason January
