Dram Shop Liability
Serving Alcohol to the Visibly Impaired in Connecticut
Under the laws of Connecticut, a commercial establishment such as a bar, liquor store, or restaurant may be held liable for injuries or death that result from patrons who cause accidents while driving drunk. The laws were established several years ago with the expectation that businesses serving alcohol would have a financial incentive to pay attention to the amount of alcohol they served their patrons. The laws have raised awareness of DWI accidents and may even be helpful in reducing the number of alcohol-related accidents. Dram Shop laws involve civil, not criminal, law. If a drunk driver causes injuries, the victim can pursue a legal cause of action to include the establishment in a lawsuit to recover money damages.
