If alcohol was supplied illegally and played a role in the incident, you may have grounds for a dram shop case.
A dram shop was the name given to black market distributors of alcohol in 18th century England, where they sold it “by the dram” without paying taxes. Today, dram shop cases fall into two categories:
- Selling to an obviously intoxicated person. This may apply to bars, restaurants, or concert venues, and can lead to drunk-driving accidents and other serious risks.
- Selling to an under-aged person. Young people are killed in automobile, truck, and motorcycle accidents at a much higher rate than those over 21. Alcohol is often a factor.
