Boston Lawyer: Dram Shop Liability
In Massachusetts, it is illegal for a business or private party to serve alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person. A person injured in a drunk driving accident or bar fight can, under liquor liability laws (dram shop laws), sue the bar owner or server for damages. Server liability can be difficult to prove since an attorney needs to find witnesses to state the intoxication was obvious.
Contact a lawyer as soon as possible
If you were injured in a drunk driving accident or in an assault and battery where your assailant was intoxicated, you may have a dram shop liability claim. If you would like to speak with an attorney from our Boston firm, Louison, Costello, Condon & Pfaff, LLP about a possible lawsuit, please contact our office at the first opportunity. It is important to begin the necessary investigation and get witness statements as soon as possible in order to build a strong case. If the assault or accident resulted in a catastrophic personal injury, such as traumatic brain injury (TBI) or paralysis, our lawyers will see that you get the right medical evaluation and treatment.
We take an aggressive stance to liquor liability claims. If the business or homeowner's liability insurance company does not offer fair compensation for your losses, including medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering, our attorneys will not hesitate to go to trial.
