What Is Dram Shop Liability?

A man was convicted of drunk driving. He faced minimal consequences in the criminal justice system. In no time at all, he was drinking and driving again. This time, however, it wasn't the police who stopped him. It was a young woman's car. In addition to the criminal proceedings he faced, the young woman's family was able to file a civil lawsuit against him and the bar that over-served him.

Many people do not know that these businesses can be held accountable for drunk driving accidents. When businesses sell, serve, or provide alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person—someone who was intoxicated to the extent that he presented a clear danger to himself and others—they are legally just as responsible.

If someone you love has been seriously injured or killed by a drunk driver, it may be possible to bring a dram shop action against the business that sold or served alcohol to the intoxicated person. You may have more options than you think.
