Liability of Bars and Restaurants

Fairfield County dram shop liability lawyer who thoroughly understands Connecticut's liquor laws and knows how get results - Attorney Jeremy Vishno. Case results matter here.

For every drunk driving accident, there is someone who sold or provided alcohol to the drunk driver at some point before the crash took place. When a negligent restaurant, liquor store or bar owner knowingly sells alcohol to a person who is already behaving drunk, the owner of the establishment could be held accountable. Unfortunately, drunk driving car accidents, assaults and arrests are all too common in Fairfield County. Bars and restaurants may be named in wrongful death claims if they were negligent in a fatal accident.

Known as "dram shops," the term applies to liquor stores, package stores and anywhere where liquor is served, including social clubs, parties and private events. By law, anyone who sells or supplies alcohol should refuse to serve liquor to people who are obviously inebriated. If you were hit by a driver who had been served alcohol when he or she had already had too much to drink, the person who supplied the alcohol could be held accountable. Such negligent conduct can result in catastrophic car accident injuries-even wrongful death.

At Vishno Law Firm, we work tirelessly to protect the rights of those injured by drunk drivers. We will also pursue compensation from grocery stores and gas stations selling alcohol, event coordinators and party hosts whose negligent alcohol sales led to your accident. Other scenarios in which we can pursue a liquor provider liability case include liquor stores selling alcohol after hours, without a license or to minors.
