Liquor Law/Dram Shop

Customers who purchased alcoholic drinks at bars and restaurants, can injure people thereafter.  These types of lawsuits are regulated by the Dram Shop Law.


 If a bar or restaurant patron becomes drunk and is involved in an accident, the Dram Shop Law entitles the injured party to file a lawsuit against that business.  If the evidence shows that you were struck by a drunk driver who became intoxicated at a business, you may have a Dram Shop case against that business.  


To establish a Dram Shop case, you need to prove that the bar or restaurant was negligent.  Negligence is normally proved by showing that the business served the customer too much alcohol when they knew that the customer was drunk.  


The drunk driver then leaves the establishment, proceeds onto the main roads and strikes another vehicle or pedestrian, causing injuries or possibly fatalities.
