Dram Shop Cases: WHAT ARE THEY?

This is just a legal name for filing a lawsuit against a Bar or Restaurant for serving liquor to a person who was visibly intoxicated and that person then drives his or her car and injures another. The key term in a Dram Shop case is proving the Bar served the person when the person was visibly intoxicated. The Bar can then be legally responsible for any injuries incurred due to the drunk drivers careless driving. We have several Dram Shop cases we are working on in our office.
