Dram Shop Claims
Others may be held responsible for drunk driving. When you or a loved one is injured by a drunk driver, you probably already knew that you could file a claim against the drunk driver. However, did you know that you might also be able to obtain compensation against the business or bartender who supplied the alcohol?
Many states, including Massachusetts, have dram shop liability laws that hold alcohol-serving establishments like bars, restaurants, and hotels liable for serving alcohol to an individual who is obviously intoxicated. Bartenders may also be held individually liable for their negligence. You may also have a right to compensation if the drunk driver was underage or purchasing alcohol after hours.
How Do You Prove That The Bar Was Responsible?
You may assume that establishing liability is simple if you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk driver, but that is not necessarily the case. Even if you are able to establish that the driver was negligent, you will need to supply additional facts to obtain compensation in a dram shop claim against the business or bartender who served alcohol to the drunk driver.
You must establish that the liquor-serving establishment or bartender served alcohol to an obviously intoxicated individual or were negligent in some other manner. Since the drunk driver may have had drinks at their home or purchased alcohol at more than one establishment, a thorough investigation must be conducted to establish liability in a dram shop claim. Our personal injury attorneys have decades of collective experience investigating and aggressively prosecuting personal injury claims. We take time to question witnesses, conduct a thorough discovery, and utilize the assistance of accident reconstruction experts when necessary to establish liability.
We work with medical experts and treating physicians to determine the full extent of our clients’ injuries and aggressively pursue the full compensation our clients are entitled to receive. As a result of our aggressive and thorough case management, we are recognized as a leading Massachusetts personal injury firm and have recovered more than $75 million in compensation on behalf of accident victims.
