Though bars, restaurants, and other establishments of this nature are in business to make money, they are still responsible for ensuring the safety of their patrons and others. Part of this responsibility is serving alcohol only to those who can legally be served. Unfortunately, they often fail to live up to this responsibility, and intoxicated patrons end up injuring others as a result, and if you’ve been hurt in such an accident, you need a competent New York City dram shop lawyer on your side.

What is New York’s Dram Shop Law?

Under New York’s Dram Shop laws, a bar, restaurant, or private host who serves alcohol to a visibly intoxicated guest may be responsible for injuries the intoxicated person inflicts upon another. In addition to your civil claims for monetary damages against the drunk person, an equally strong case may be made against the drinking establishment or host that continued to serve the guest and increased his or her blood alcohol levels.

Our experience in prosecuting personal injury cases under New York’s Dram Shop laws has shown that filing a lawsuit against a bar, restaurant, or homeowner often brings to the table enough insurance to fully compensate our grievously injured clients. Common fact patterns which suggest that a commercial drinking venue or private host is legally at fault for an intoxicated person’s negligent conduct include:

  • Servers who fail to stop serving drunk customers
  • Bar/Restaurant patrons who assault other customers in the venue
  • Bar/Restaurant patrons who drive unsuspecting friends home and cause a car accident
  • Party hosts who permit drunk guests to drive home (rather than confiscate the keys)
  • Private hosts who permit intoxicated guests to operate heavy machinery or projectiles on the host’s property
  • Intoxicated guests who injure other guests on the host’s property (e.g., in swimming pools or other recreational activities).

If an intoxicated person has injured you, you need an experienced New York City drunk driving accident lawyer who knows the means and methods of determining whether a negligent alcohol server or homeowner may legally be at fault for your injuries under New York’s the Dram Shop law.
