Liquor Host Liability and Dram Shops

A dram shop is an establishment that sells or serves alcohol. This includes:

  • Liquor stores
  • Bars and taverns
  • Restaurants
  • Hotels

Under liquor liability law, if a dram shop sells or serves alcohol to a person who is clearly intoxicated, they may be held liable if that person causes an accident. If you or a family member were injured by drunk driver, you may be able to file a claim against the driver and the dram shop establishment that served them. Also, if you were a passenger in a motor vehicle and were involved in an alcohol intoxication-related accident, we can help.

If you get drunk and drive and have a car accident, you may also be able to file a claim against the dram shop that over-served you.
