Phoenix Dram Shop Attorneys

Under Arizona law, a victim of a drunk driving accident does not only have rights against the drunk driver but also the bar, club, restaurant or other drinking establishment that served alcohol to the intoxicated driver. Their actions are held accountable under Arizona dram shop laws. This is because holding a liquor license is a privilege and not a right, and means alcohol has to be served in a responsible and legal manner.

Serving Alcohol to Intoxicated Individuals/Minors

Dram shop/bartender liability includes:

  • Selling alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person
  • Selling alcohol to a minor
  • Selling alcohol with an expired liquor license or without a license
  • Selling alcohol outside of designated hours

Dram shop is not limited to just drinking establishments but can also apply to parents who allow underage children to drink alcohol at their home and then drive home, resulting in injury or death.

We Will Investigate the Truth

The firm will investigate exactly what happened and question any eyewitnesses who saw the drunk driver's behavior inside the bar and restaurant. We will be there from start to finish, including providing any experts.

One of our Phoenix drunk driving and dram shop attorneys, Curt Clausen, served as a hotel and restaurant manager prior to earning his law degree. He has a deep understanding of the responsibility of bartenders and restaurant owners in regard to serving alcohol and can explain how dram shop liability laws apply to your case.
