When people are intoxicated, they can cause many problems, including injuries. These injuries are not limited to car and motorcycle collisions, but can also include assaults and many other types of mishaps. While all 50 states will hold an intoxicated person responsible for the injuries they cause, 38 states will also hold a bar or restaurant responsible if they serve alcohol to an intoxicated person.
Liquor liability cases are often called “Dram Shop” cases. They can be brought against most any business that sells alcohol and are usually for selling alcohol to a minor or to a person who is already intoxicated. Dram Shop rules encourage liquor sellers to serve alcohol safely and hold them responsible when they don’t. Since intoxicated people can easily become a hazard, Dram Shop laws are in place to protect people who are injured in alcohol-related incidents.
