Aggressive Personal Injury Attorneys Prioritizing Your Safe Recovery and Deserved Compensation

Phoenix Dram Shop Lawyer

In a drunk driving accident, it is easy for many people to pin the blame on the driver. Truly, most of the liability indeed rests with them as they were the person who made the decision to get behind the wheel when intoxicated. What most people do not realize, however, is that they are not the only people who can be held responsible for the accident. In fact, the establishment that sold the alcohol to the driver can also face liability.

What Is Dram Shop Liability?

In the state of Arizona, a licensee can be held liable for an accident if he or she unlawfully served alcohol. According to §4-311 of the 2010 Arizona Code, a licensee can be held liable for both property damage and injuries sustained in the accident if they served liquor to a patron who was already obviously impaired or sold to a consumer without asking for an ID to confirm legal age.

In order to successfully make a case for dram shop liability, three things must be proven:

  • The establishment committed either of the above acts when selling the liquor
  • The purchaser became intoxicated off the alcohol
  • The intoxication was the direct cause of injury or death in the accident
