Drunk driving is a serious problem on our roadways. When a driver drives drunk and causes an accident an injured party has a case not only against the drunk driver but sometimes also against the bar, tavern, or restaurant that served the drunk driver. This type of case, known as a Dram Shop action, imposes a responsibility on the establishment to monitor its guests and not serve a guest who appears visibly intoxicated. Evidence from eyewitnesses or blood alcohol testing can establish that the bar, tavern, or restaurant served the driver when he or she was visibly intoxicated. The establishment is then responsible to the injured parties for serving alcohol to the visibly intoxicated drunk driver. In one such case handled by Asta Law, a settlement of $1,000,000.00 was obtained for a New Jersey family on their way home from a vacation when they were crashed into by a drunk driver. The firm recovered from the drunk driver and from the establishments that served the drunk driver based on evidence that the driver was visibly intoxicated when the establishments continued to serve her alcohol.
