Holding Alcohol Establishments Accountable For Overserving
In the state of Connecticut, you can hold a business liable for contributing to injuries or death caused by its customers – specifically in cases where patrons leave an establishment after consuming alcohol and then cause a drunk driving accident. This includes bars, liquor stores and restaurants. The laws give businesses serving alcohol a financial incentive to pay attention to how much alcohol they serve patrons.
Dramshop laws involve civil, not criminal, liability. In addition to helping compensate victims, such laws have raised awareness of DWI accidents and may even be helpful in reducing the number of alcohol-related accidents.
