Liquor bar liability is an area of law recognized as "dram shop" liability.  Dram shop liability holds liquor stores, bars and any other establishments that serve or sell liquor negligent for the injuries or death caused to third parties by their intoxicated customers or patrons.  An establishment may also be held liable for the injuries suffered by one's own patrons.  In order to be liable under Florida's dram shop liability statue, the establishment must have "knowingly" served alcoholic drinks or liquor products to:

  • Alcoholics
  • Drunks
  • Habitual Drinkers
  • Visibly Drunk Patron
  • Minors

For example, if a patron is visibly intoxicated and the establishment continues to knowingly sell or serve alcoholic drinks and the patron later causes a car accident resulting in injuries or even death to third parties, the establishment may be held liable under Florida's dram shop statute.

Most liquor bar or dram shop liability cases surface because a drunken patron is responsible for causing a car accident that resulted in catastrophic type injuries or wrongful death to others.  Accidents involving drunk driving or DUI are more complicated than your typical motor vehicle crash accident.  Choosing a law firm to represent you on your injuries or the family of a wrongful death victim is a very important decision. 

We also handle cases involving serious crash accident injuries or death because of the negligence of a drunken driver or DUI case.  Unlike other law firms, we don't just look at vehicle insurance coverage for your recovery and just compensation.
