Dram Shop Liability

While tougher DUI laws and increased enforcement have reduced drunk driving in the United States, someone still dies in an alcohol-related car accident approximately every 53 minutes. (National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 2011). For those that have been seriously injured and for families who have lost a loved one in alcohol-related car accidents, obtaining full compensation for their injuries can be difficult given that, all too frequently, many irresponsible individuals who drive a motor vehicle while intoxicated have very little insurance.

Importantly, liability for injuries suffered by a DUI Victim may not only rest with the drunk driver. Under Georgia's Dram Shop law, an injured victim may be able to hold certain individuals and businesses responsible for injuries caused by a drunk driver. Specifically, individuals, bars, restaurants, liquor stores, and other establishments can be held liable for selling and providing alcohol to noticeably intoxicated patrons who they know will soon be driving. Additionally, individuals, bars, restaurants, liquor stores, and other establishments can be held liable for selling and providing alcohol to individuals who are not 21 years of age or older.

Dram Shop cases are fact intensive and establishing fault on behalf of the alcohol provider can be difficult. An experienced Georgia Dram Shop lawyer will be able to thoroughly investigate all the facts, including who served the alcohol, how much alcohol was served, and the background of the establishment and the employees who served the alcohol. Fortunately, The Abrego Law Firm, LLC, has successfully handled a variety of Dram Shop cases.
