DRAM SHOP Services

Dram Shop may be an unfamiliar term to most people, but is a service that is quite often used. Dram Shop is a legal term in the U.S. that refers to a bar, tavern or any establishment that sells alcoholic beverages. Dram Shop liability commonly refers to the body of law that governs the liability of taverns, liquor stores and other commercial businesses that serve alcoholic beverages. These Dram Shop laws set the ruling ground for how responsible an establishment is for selling alcohol to someone who is visibly intoxicated, both of age and minors. These patrons, who were served either past the point of intoxication or under age then cause death or injury to a third party or parties because of alcohol consumption from said establishment.

These laws are to protect the general public from the hazards of serving alcohol to minors and/or intoxicated individuals. Popular groups such as MADD are prominent endorsers of strong Dram Shop laws across the country. Investigative Resource Center has experts who can help you with your Dram Shop cases. Dram Shop cases occur on both sides of an accident and there are times where the establishment may seem at fault, but may actually be innocent.
