Handling an unexpected injury can cause great distress to the innocently injured, and you and your family members should not have to bear this burden alone. A majority of states have laws—commonly known as “dram shop laws”—to help innocent victims of drunk driving accidents recover compensation for the harm caused by their injuries. Dram shop laws are intended to hold licensed sellers of alcohol responsible for selling alcohol to people who went on to cause an accident while intoxicated.
The claim for damages under these types of laws vary state-by-state, but an experienced personal injury lawyer will have to prove negligence, recklessness or intentional conduct on the part of the seller of alcohol, depending on the particular legal standards. Hendler Lyons Flores will walk you through your options in such cases, and will counsel you on how best to proceed.
