What is Dram Shop Liability?

Dram Shop Liability

Dram shop liability laws mean that if a customer buys a drink, leaves that location, and then causes harm, the owner of the place where the drink was served is legally responsible. Such harms may include death, injury, or other damages that result from alcohol-related car crashes.

In North Carolina, businesses must stop serving alcohol once a patron becomes visibly drunk. Since 1994, our law firm has pursued maximum compensation against restaurants and bars for serving alcohol to a customer who later caused a drunk driving accident. We are committed to helping you hold the at-fault driver and the business responsible for their negligent actions.
