Providing lawsuit funding on dram shop liability cases
Although the term is antiquated, dram shops are the name for businesses that sell liquor. This can include restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and liquor stores. The name comes from a unit of measurement, called dram, which is how liquor quantities used to be measured. Individuals who are injured or otherwise damaged by drunk drivers should find out whether their state has a dram shop liability law. This law holds alcohol-serving businesses responsible when they over-serve an intoxicated customer and the customer later harms people or property.
Holding Dram Shops Responsible
Purveyors of alcohol have a responsibility to cut off customers who are showing obvious signs of drunkenness. Whether that’s slurring, starting fights, or being unable to hold themselves up. When these establishments don’t uphold their responsibility some states, such as Illinois, allow injured and damaged parties to sue the negligent business in order to recover damages.
Each state has its own set of rules that must be met in order for the dram shop liability to take effect.
By suing the dram shop, not only do you recover your own damages, but you could teach the business owner a valuable lesson that forces him or her to change business practices and policies and prevents someone else from becoming a victim.
