Sclar Law Group has successfully defended Dram Shop liability claims. Dram Shop laws govern the liability of bars, liquor stores and other commercial establishments that sell or serve alcoholic beverages. Certain states allow for private host liability as well. These laws generally provide for liability arising out of the sale or service of alcohol to visibly intoxicated persons or minors who subsequently cause death or injury to third-parties as a result of alcohol-related car crashes and other incidents. Our attorneys have successfully defended commercial clients including hotels, bars and caterers in personal injury and wrongful death cases arising from claims under Dram Shop laws.
