Dram Shop Act And DUI Accidents
Is a bar owner or a social host responsible for injuries and fatalities that happen after a customer or guest was served alcohol? Georgia’s laws say yes, in some circumstances. See GA Code § 51-1-40 (2020) for details, including the following description of dram shop liability:
“A person who willfully, knowingly and unlawfully sells, furnishes, or serves alcoholic beverages to a person who is not of lawful drinking age…or…knowingly sells, furnishes, or serves alcoholic beverages to a person who is in a state of noticeable intoxication…may become liable for injury…resulting from the intoxication…”
We Have Your Back
At Buck Rogers Law, we are persistent, diligent and aggressive when gathering evidence to verify dram shop liability. We work hard to prove that clients have suffered serious or catastrophic injuries because of negligence as described in Georgia’s dram shop laws.
The causes of a wreck are typically unknown immediately afterward. The police, insurance company representatives or the media may describe a collision as an accident. However, when our lead attorney, professional staff and expert witnesses look into the back story, our hard work has proven successful time and again. We often uncover clear evidence that a merchant or social host served alcohol to an underage drinker or a visibly drunk person who then drove and injured our client or killed a client’s close family member.
