Just like you, I had to look up the definition of “dram shop”. It is another name for a tavern, bar, or some kind of establishment where alcoholic drinks are sold. It sounds way cooler than just a “bar” and it’s also the name of a law that is on your side.
If you or someone you know is dealing with a catastrophic injury or wrongful death due to a drunk driving accident then you are at the right place. Our attorneys at Dan Doyle Law Firm in Philadelphia are here to make sure your case is not just efficient, but thorough. Dram Shop and Liquor Liability is la aw that holds bars and the like responsible for serving an intoxicated person and holding them, as well as the drunk driver, accountable for the drunk person’s conduct.
For example, a DUI accident occurred in the early AM in North Philadelphia injuring three people. According to the Dram Shop and Liquor Liability law, those who were effected could put a case against the drunk driver as well as the place where the driver got intoxicated. Another example of how this law can benefit your case is when a man, who was arrested for his 5th DUI, drove drunk which resulted in him hitting two teenagers walking. It is easy to sue the driver, but sometimes the injuries require more compensation which is why it is important to look to the place that constantly served the drunk man.
When a drunk driving case is reported it is common to set a case against the driver. This means that you usually sue the driver and receive compensation via their insurance, but attorneys here at Dan Doyle Firm in Philadelphia know that the scope of this tragic tale is bigger. In order to truly stop the culture behind drunk driving ,you must look to the local watering hole that is responsible for continuing to serve drinks to drunk persons.
