  • Emotional suffering / mental anguish
  • Punitive damages (as punishment)

Dram Shop Liability in Drunk Driving Accident Cases

Arizona law declares that a bar or restaurant can be held legally responsible for an injury or death caused by an intoxicated individual who was over-served at the establishment. Referred to as “dram shop” liability, this statute allows victims of drunk driving accidents to seek compensation from an establishment that over-served an intoxicated individual.

Statistics from the Arizona Department of Public Safety show that someone dies from an alcohol-related car crash about every 30 minutes in the United States. Many of the drunk drivers involved in these collisions are coming home from an evening at the bar. In such cases, the establishment can be held responsible for the resulting injury or death.

We will investigate the following in order to build a strong case on your behalf:

  • The proof of sale of alcohol to the intoxicated patron
  • Proximate cause between the sale and the patron's intoxication
  • Extent of the injuries sustained by the accident victim

You have the right to seek justice when other people (including bars and restaurants) act with careless disregard for your safety. If you were injured in a drunk driving accident, contact Suzuki Law Offices, L.L.C. to see if you have cause for legal action. We can thoroughly review the details of your accident to determine if a dram shop claim would be appropriate.
