Dram shop liability:
Dram shop liability is when a bar owner or other type of drinking establishment is held accountable for serving a visibly intoxicated person. If this visibly intoxicated person then goes and injures a third party, or even one of their own passengers, the bar owner and his staff can be held accountable. These cases are complicated and require the most experienced Dram shop attorney on your side.
Social host liability:
If an individual continues to serve a visibly intoxicated person in their home who they know to be driving, that homeowner can be held responsible for any injuries caused by that drunk driver. The legal term for this is social host liability.
