Dram Shop/Liquor Liabilities
Dram Shop/Liquor Liability in Texas
When our clients have been injured in drunk driving accidents, we pursue injury claims against the parties responsible for the life-changing events. While the impaired driver is held accountable in both civil and criminal matters, we do not stop there. The owners of bars, restaurants and liquor stores whose employees continued to serve intoxicated patrons can be deemed responsible as well.
Significant profits can be made from liquor sales. However, when revenues replace responsibilities for community safety, the attorneys at Rodriguez Trial Law build fact-based and compelling dram shop injury claims.
Overcoming the Challenges of Dram Shop/Liquor Liability Claims for Our Clients
Texas laws that hold establishments that knowingly serve liquor to already intoxicated patrons responsible have changed over the years. While bars and restaurants can still be held accountable for drunk driving accidents, their negligence is measured by a different standard than the impaired driver who left their establishment.
Drivers have a duty of care to other drivers. So do establishments that serve liquor to customers who drove to and drive from their locations. Our focus on maximizing compensation means that we will explore all sources. That includes investigating the events that led up to the accident, including where the responsible driver was prior to getting behind the wheel of the car while impaired. To do this, we must be fully informed of all current laws dealing with the serving of alcohol to intoxicated patrons.
Do not assume that the criminal justice system will provide the real justice you need. Take action and contact Rodriguez Trial Law.
