Dram Shop Liability Law

In the state of Georgia, you may be able to seek restitution from a restaurant or bar that sold alcohol to the individual who caused your accident.

The two scenarios that qualify under dram shop laws include:

  • The sale of alcohol to an individual who is under the age of 21
  • The sale of alcohol to an individual who is already visibly intoxicated

In these cases, when the intoxicated individual goes on to cause an accident that results in an injury or death, the establishment may be liable.

An attorney must prove the following elements to win dram shop damages:

  • The individual showed obvious, visible signs of intoxication that the bar or establishment should reasonably have recognized
  • The server understood that the individual was going to be operating a vehicle
  • The service of the alcohol was the proximate cause of the accident

The dram shop laws apply not only to bars and restaurants, but to property owners as well. This means that if a homeowner served alcohol to an individual who matched the above conditions, which then led to an injury-causing accident, he or she can be liable for any damages.

Seeking Compensation After an Accident

The criminal justice system punishes offenders, but criminal court does not always address the issue of compensation for damages. In this kind of preventable accident, the negligent driver's insurance company usually acts quickly to offer a settlement, but in most cases, it is one that is far lower than deserved. This is why it is essential to pursue a personal injury claim with a competent lawyer on your side.

Our Atlanta car accident attorney has many years of experience in investigating, gathering and preserving evidence and witness statements to support our claims. It is vital that you retain an experienced drunk driving accident lawyer to handle your claim and protect your right to compensation. Our legal team has been fighting for the rights of injured clients for more than a decade and has an impressive record of success.
