Pennsylvania has legislated dram shop acts - laws that forbid bars and restaurants from serving alcohol to noticeably intoxicated patrons. Any adult who gives an under-aged individual an alcoholic beverages may also be guilty of liquor liability.
Since most drunk drivers seldom have an amount of auto insurance to sufficiently compensate the individuals they kill or terribly injure, it is critical for the businesses that negligently served the victim additional amounts of alcohol to also be held responsible.
The personalinjury lawyers at The Law Offices of Michael O’Day will:
Determine the driver's blood alcohol level
Examine venue receipts to conclude the amount of drinks consumed by the driver
Decide if the venue policies and procedures for handling intoxicated patrons was sufficient
Decide if the bartenders, servers and managers were correctly trained
We will determine the compensation liability
Venues, as well as home owners, who serve alcohol to visibly intoxicated or under-aged persons, may all be liable.
If you or a family member has been injured or killed as a result of liquor liability, The Law Offices of Michael O'Day is committed to getting you what you are entitled to.
