Establishments that sell liquor are called dram shops. A dram shop can be a bar, tavern, restaurant, club or even a liquor store. These establishments have a duty to stop selling alcoholic beverages to clients when they are visibly intoxicated. If the patron is overserved, gets behind the wheel and causes an injury, the establishment can be held accountable.
Unfortunately, many of these institutions put profits ahead of safety and promote overconsumption, particularly during specials and happy hours. This might not even be intentional if the establishment is extremely crowded and noisy.
Nevertheless, if this negligence ends up causing injury or death to innocent people, it is important to hold that establishment accountable.
