Overserving

Posted on June 4th, 2009 No Comments

When you are consuming alcoholic beverages in a bar, restaurant, sporting event, or other establishment that serves drinks, it may be very easy to lose track of how much you have consumed. The person serving the drinks, however, has a much more objective view of how much alcohol you have drank, and they should not continue serving alcohol to patrons who are visibly intoxicated.

If you or a loved one has been overserved or been the victim of an injury caused by an individual who was overserved, contact Cincinnati overserving attorney Shawn M. Stepleton at 513-321-7733 to learn more about your legal options.

What is Overserving?

A bartender or anyone else serving alcoholic beverages has a duty to the patrons of his or her establishment. Consuming alcohol puts a people in a state of mind where they may not be able to objectively judge the amount they have drank, and thus a bartender has some degree of responsibility to prevent overserving and ensure the safety of the patrons.

A person who has drunk too much can easily pose a danger to himself and others. If such a person is visibly or otherwise obviously intoxicated and a bartender continues to serve them anyway, the bartender may be liable for any injuries which result from that person’s actions.

Although everyone has a degree of personal responsibility to ensure their own safety, it is impossible to fully protect oneself from the actions of others, especially if those other people are under the influence of alcohol. If you or a loved one has been injured by someone who was overserved, contact Cincinnati overserving attorney Shawn M. Stepleton at 513-321-7733.
