Dram Shop Liability
Property owners such as bar or restaurant owners can be held liable for the actions of individuals who were visibly intoxicated, even after they leave your place of establishment. If a patron was drunk and causes an accident or injury after you served him or her alcohol, you can be held liable.
Dram shop liability cases are complicated and need a skilled defense attorney to protect your rights. If you do not have a liquor liability insurance policy, you can face serious consequences if someone you serve causes an accident or injures someone.
Bars, restaurants, movie theaters and other establishments can be named in a civil suit for negligent security or negligent supervision after someone is injured in an assault or abused or hurt by a caregiver. These cases are very complex. We understand the different ways you may be held liable and what options may be available when defending against these claims.
