Dram Shop Law
Dram shops are taverns, bars, and other establishments that serve alcohol. Dram shops also include other commercial establishments that sell liquor. Dram shop laws were enacted to hold these establishments responsible for the death of those killed in accidents involving drunk drivers. These laws also hold establishments responsible for injuries and damages caused by drunk drivers or impaired customers.
Social host liability laws also fall under dram shop laws. These laws can hold private party hosts responsible for injuries or death to guests after serving alcohol. For example, if the party host failed to stop serving a guest alcohol and, the guest was killed while driving home, the host could be held responsible for the victim’s death. The same goes for guests of bars or taverns who are not cut off after showing visible signs of intoxication or who are not prevented from getting behind the wheel.
To prove fault in a dram shop law case, you must present the following:
- Proof that the patron was sold alcohol
- Proof that the patron suffered injuries
- Cause that the sale of alcohol was related to the patron’s intoxication
- At least one cause of the damages to a third party was due to intoxication
