Dram Shop Act & Alcohol-Caused Injuries
Injuries Caused by Excessive Service of Alcohol
Since the 1980s, Arizona common law has allowed owners of bars and restaurants to be held accountable for serving excessive alcohol to intoxicated patrons. When it is obvious that a patron is intoxicated, serving them more alcohol only raises the chances that they will do something reckless and injure an innocent person, or that they will suffer injury themselves. In cases where a person has been injured by an intoxicated individual or where a person was injured after being served too much alcohol, a dram shop claim could help them obtain compensation for their damages.
In order to file a successful dram shop claim, the injury victim must be able to prove that their injuries are the direct result of a negligent bar or restaurant owner. That is why you need to hire a Tucson personal injury lawyer as soon as possible. With an attorney by your side to help you gather the evidence and witness statements to prove that you or another individual was served excessive alcohol, you will be able to prove liability and recover maximum compensation for your claim.
