Liquor Law, Drunk Driving And Overserving (Dram Shop Liability)
Being hit by a drunk driver is one of the most emotionally traumatic experiences anyone can go through — to say nothing of the serious and even life-changing physical injuries that frequently result.
If you or a loved one was the victim of a drunk driver’s reckless actions, you’ve probably already learned that his or her insurance isn’t enough to fully compensate you for the severe impact that the accident has had on your physical health, mental well-being and other aspects of your life. You may be wondering if there are options to pursue additional compensation.

When It Comes To Drunk Driving, The Law Is On Your Side
Liquor liability laws known as dram shop laws are used to hold establishments that serve alcohol liable when their actions play a role in injury-causing motor vehicle and other accidents.
Under Florida law, bars and restaurants may be liable if they serve someone they know is addicted to alcoholic beverages. While this may at first seem like a challenging thing to prove, an experienced personal injury lawyer can obtain the evidence that supports an argument that a bar or restaurant should be held financially responsible for an accident victim’s injuries. This can include:
- Driver BAC levels
- Surveillance footage
- Eyewitness testimony
With decades of experience representing people in Florida who have faced long recoveries and financial hardship following accidents, I can quickly and effectively prepare cases to maximize the compensation my clients receive. If you or your loved one is suffering following a drunk driving accident, you deserve nothing less.
