How can the Dram Shop law help individuals who are involved in a drunk driving accident?
According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), “approximately one-third of all traffic crash fatalities in the United States involve drunk drivers with BAC levels of .08 or higher.” In 2016, one person was killed every 50 minutes in a drunk driving accident. Aside from the accidents that result in death, many of them end with victims suffering from life-altering injuries such as deformities, disabilities, and more.
While a drunk driving accident victim could once only hold the driver themselves accountable for causing a vehicular accident, now, the bar, restaurant, or other establishment that served the alcohol may share some of the accountability as the servers and bartenders should be monitoring the limit of alcohol a person is consuming to ensure they aren’t over-doing it.
