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 personal injury 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.

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 personal injury 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.
