Liquor Liability

Liquor liability or “dram shop” liability matters require a keen understanding of the obligations imposed upon establishments that sell or serve alcohol in our jurisdictions. Our attorneys of BBC understand the nuances associated with standards of intoxication, analyses of blood-alcohol content, over-service allegations, and hospitality industry training and certification. We routinely represent commercial hosts including hotels, restaurants, taverns, social clubs, and public dining facilities, as well as suppliers, distributors, and importers in various liquor liability claims.

Our representation includes working closely with the bar owners and their employees. The primary focus of our initial evaluation is to ensure that the needs of our clients come first. Owning and operating an establishment that serves alcohol is challenging enough in our region. The influx of litigation has made bar ownership extremely difficult. The proper representation is imperative to ensure an outcome that will satisfy all parties. BBC Law Firm attorneys work quickly to evaluate a claim and develop a plan to move forward with the appropriate defense in a liquor liability matter.

We regularly work with several types of experts including toxicologists, investigators and security specialists. Developing a solid defense to eliminate the exposure of the bar owner is a primary goal of our team.
