Dram Shop Liability
Serving Alcohol to the Visibly Impaired in Connecticut
In the state of Connecticut, you can hold a commercial establishment liable for injuries or death resulting from patrons who cause drunk driving accidents while driving drunk. This includes bars, liquor stores and restaurants. The laws give businesses serving alcohol a financial incentive to pay attention to how much of alcohol they serve patrons. Such 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 against the establishment. This involves a lawsuit to recover money damages.
