Bar & Bar Employee Liability

Our San Antonio Dram Shop Liability Lawyers Can Help You with Your Claim

If you have lost a loved one as a result of an accident involving a drunk driver, you have every right to be furious, sad, and overwhelmed. But it is important to understand that you have rights. An experienced bar liability attorney can help you explore your options for taking action against a negligent driver, as well as the restaurant or bar that served the drunk driver. In certain cases, the bar or bar employee that served the driver may be held liable for your losses.

At The Law Offices of Tyler & Peery, our attorneys can guide you through the legal process as you pursue a personal injury or wrongful death claim. We have more than a century of combined litigation experience and are committed to obtaining fair and just compensation for our clients.

Was your loved one injured or killed in a drunk driving accident? Call us today at (210) 774-6445 for a free initial consultation with our dram shop liability lawyers in San Antonio.

Holding Bars & Bar Employees Accountable

While many people are vaguely aware that businesses can be held accountable for their role in drunk driving accidents, people are unsure of their rights. It turns out you may have more options than you think. When businesses sell, serve, or otherwise provide alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person, they are just as responsible as the drunk driver for any injuries or deaths that result.

Our experienced bar liability attorneys work with experts to determine levels of alcoholic absorption and investigate a number of factors to determine liability in these cases, including:

  • Alcohol-related promotions, such as happy hours
  • Whether or not the restaurant completed the required program from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission
  • The lack of a policy guiding bar employees on when not to serve obviously intoxicated patrons

If we find that a bar or bar employee is partially or fully at fault for the accident, we can help you pursue a dram shop liability claim.
