Holding Establishments Liable With Dram Shop Laws
Establishments with liquor licenses may be held liable for serving patrons who are obviously intoxicated if these patrons leave the establishment and cause a car accident. Depending on the circumstances that led up to the accident itself, you may be able to hold an alcohol selling establishment responsible for the pain and suffering you have undergone as a result of the traffic accident.
Using Dram Shop Laws to Recover Compensation
If we can prove that the driver that hit you was served alcohol even after he or she was obviously intoxicated, we may be able to hold the establishment partially liable for the following:
- The medical care you have undergone
- The loss of income during your recovery
- Any diminishment to your quality of life
Whatever the particulars of your claim happen to be, our legal team can help you evaluate your claim and take any legal action we can to recover compensation from every party that is found to share responsibility for your accident.
