Dram Shop Liability

If you have lost a family member or loved one to an alcohol-related automobile accident, you undoubtedly feel an incredible amount of grief, loss, and anger. It is natural to want to see the person or people responsible for your loss punished for their negligent and dangerous actions.

While most people will bring charges against the negligent driver who caused an alcohol-related accident, it is possible to extend responsibility to other individuals in some states.

Many states in the US have laws known as “dram shop liability” laws. These laws allow the victims of drunk driving accidents (or their surviving family members) to bring charges against any establishment that provided alcohol to an already intoxicated individual who later caused an accident.

As such, if an intoxicated person goes to a bar and is provided with alcohol once he or she is visibly drunk and then later causes an accident, the bar that continued to give him or her alcohol can be held liable for their role in causing the accident in question.

The costs of recovering from an alcohol-related motor vehicle accident are very high, and so you and your family deserve all the compensation you can get for your accident or the accident of your loved one.
