What Is A Dramshop Claim?
Dramshop claims come about when a bar, restaurant or liquor store sells alcohol to a person who is already drunk. If that person later injures a third party while under the influence of alcohol, the courts may deem the establishment that served them to be liable for the injuries or death they have caused.
In cases where the drunk driver does not have auto insurance, dramshop claims are a good way to ensure you will still receive the compensation you need to recover from your serious injuries.
