Pursuing Compensation Through Dram Shop Liability
Depending on the insurance coverage of the drunk driver, you may not have
received the amount of compensation necessary to cover your medical expenses,
lost wages, or other costs. If the drunk driver was served alcohol at
a bar or social gathering, you may be able to pursue additional compensation
through Dram Shop liability.
Dram shop law refers to
any business or individual that knowingly serves alcohol to a person demonstrating
signs of intoxication. This includes social hosts of private or corporate parties. The individual
that supplied the alcohol can only be held liable if these two points are true:
- They knew the intoxicated person was indeed drunk/intoxicated
- The person's intoxication was a foreseeable cause of injury, i.e.,
someone at a party who would have to drive home.
Dram shop liability can be difficult to prove, but an experienced South
Bend personal injury lawyer at our firm can investigate all aspects of
your case and help you hold the negligence parties accountable for your injury.
