Dram Shop Law or Liquor Liability
Injuries which result from over-service of alcohol are known as dram shop cases. A “dram shop” is an establishment that sells or serves alcohol. Dram shop liability can apply to any place that serves alcoholic beverages including restaurants, bars, nightclubs, liquor stores, and sometimes hosts of private parties. Those serving alcohol to persons who are already visibly intoxicated may be legally responsible if that person subsequently causes a car accident or otherwise injures or kills another person or himself.
Cases involving dram shop liability are complex. At Golden Law Office we previously defended large national companies who were accused of dram shop liability.
