Kentucky Dram Shop Liability Lawyer

Drunk driving is a major problem throughout the United States, including Kentucky. With 27 percent of all car accident fatalities involving alcohol, intoxication is a major contributor to deadly auto accidents in Kentucky. Unfortunately, drunk driving accidents can also lead to devastating injuries. In some cases, those who are injured because of inebriated drivers can pursue a lawsuit against the individual to recover damages.

With Kentucky’s dram shop liability laws, those injured by drunk drivers can pursue a lawsuit against the establishment that knowingly served alcohol to the drunk patrons or minors that caused the accident. If you or a loved one has been injured because of a driver or vendor’s irresponsible actions, contact the Louisville dram shop liability attorneys of Sampson Law Firm at 502-584-5050 to schedule a free consultation with a qualified lawyer.

Elements of a Dram Shop Liability Case

Dram shop laws are different for each state, but they are applicable in the state of Kentucky when accidents involve minors as well as adults. “Dram shop” is a term for any establishment that sells alcohol or spirits. A dram shop can be a bar, tavern, liquor store, and even a restaurant. If these establishments sell alcohol to visibly intoxicated adults or minors, the establishment may be held partially responsible for any subsequent drunk driving accidents. Some considerations for a dram shop case include:

  • Was the patron visibly intoxicated in a way that the server should have noticed?
  • Was the accident a direct result of the alcohol served by the dram shop?
  • Was the patron still intoxicated at the time of the accident?

If dram shop liability applies to your situation, a practiced attorney can help you prove these elements of your case so that you can receive the full compensation you deserve.
