Illegal Supply of Alcohol / Dram Shop
Dram Shop Cases Are Our Attorney's Specialty
Illegal-supply-of-alcohol cases almost always fall into one of two categories. The first involves the sale of alcohol to minors. It is the responsibility of any licensed facility to first, insist that patrons be able to present valid identification, and second, be able to determine whether or not the identification presented by a customer is valid. Those that fail to do so may be liable for any harm to others that results from the intoxication of a minor.
The second type of dram-shop case involves the sale of alcohol to a patron who is visibly intoxicated. This standard may be applicable regardless of the number of different establishments at which that individual may have purchased and/or consumed alcohol. This type of illegal supply of alcohol often corresponds with cases of driving under the influence.
