Our team of attorneys is aggressive in holding drunk drivers and establishments accountable for the damage they have done to our clients in a drunk driving accident.

Dram Shop Liability Lawyers

When an intoxicated patron leaves a bar or restaurant, gets into a motor vehicle and then causes an accident that injures or kills another person, the bar or restaurant may be liable for damages. This area of law is known as dram shop liability. However, the circumstances that would allow you to sue the bar or restaurant are extremely limited in Tennessee and Kentucky.

Our Attorneys For People Injured By DUI Drivers aggressively holding drunk drivers accountable for the injuries they cause. If you or a loved was injured by a person who was driving under the influence, we offer a free initial consultation to discuss your legal options. Those may include suing the drunk driver and in certain circumstances a bar or restaurant that served alcohol to that person. If the drunk driver is underinsured or uninsured, we can also help you recover compensation from your own coverage for uninsured and underinsured drivers.

Responsibilities Of Bars And Restaurants In Tennessee & Kentucky

Under Tennessee & Kentucky Dram Shop Act, sellers of alcoholic beverages (known as dram shops) may be liable from damages caused by the people they serve in two circumstances:

  • If they sold alcoholic beverages to a person known to be under the age of 21, who subsequently injures someone
  • If they sold alcoholic beverages to a visibly intoxicated person, who subsequently injures someone

In both cases, you must show that your injury was the direct result of the drunk driver consuming the alcoholic beverage. That can be difficult to prove.

Let Our Decades of Legal Experience Work For You

All documentation will be secured to establish your drunk driving accident case. That will include the driving record and criminal record of the individual who caused the accident. The police report will be gone through thoroughly as well. Data related to his or her blood alcohol content and the results of any field sobriety tests will be reviewed as well.

Drunk driving may be a criminal matter, but his or her disposition following a trial has little bearing on your case. The standards are different in civil court and our lawyers will work diligently to prove that the driver was negligent and inebriated while operating his or her vehicle. You are entitled to compensation for your medical bills and pain and suffering if you are a victim of a drunk driver. A drunk driving accident could also result in payment for punitive damages due to the extent of the negligence.
