Bar and Tavern (Dram Shop) Liability

Statistics associated with bar and tavern liability laws show that each year in the United States, one out of every 100 people will be involved in an automobile accident. Many of these accidents are caused by negligent and drunk drivers who have left local bars and taverns. Accidents of this nature are the result of negligence on the part of both the drivers and the establishments that continued to serve them alcohol well after they were intoxicated.

In the state of Texas, bar and tavern liability laws hold that in the event alcohol is sold to someone who is drunk or underage, the establishment may also share liability in the event that person causes death or injury to others. Driving while under the influence leads to reckless driving, distractions, speeding, and ultimately accidents and deaths on the roadways. As a result, all parties involved must be held responsible.

If you or someone you love has been hurt or killed in a drunk driving or alcohol related accident, you may be entitled to compensation under bar and tavern liability laws. At Chandler, Mathis, & Zivley we have extensive experience in pursuing dram shop liability claims against taverns, bars, and restaurants that have sold alcohol to visibly intoxicated individuals.
