Bar Liability

Bar or tavern liability is an important area of the law. If the drunk driver that hit you left a bar that served that person too much alcohol, the bar could be wholly or partially responsible for the accident.

Bars and taverns have a duty not to serve visibly intoxicated individuals. They may have a duty to ensure that an intoxicated patron does not drive their vehicle and cause a hazard.

If you or a loved one was injured due to a drunk driver that left a bar or tavern, you may need to pursue a claim against that institution. As this is a tricky area of the law, you need guidance from a lawyer. Call the team at Diamond & Diamond™ for your free consultation.
