Des Moines Dram Shop Liability Lawyers
When a place of business chooses to sell alcohol, it implicitly takes on certain responsibilities for regulating the sale of alcohol to customers. In the state of Iowa, establishments must abide by the state’s dram shop liability law. This law makes it illegal for an establishment to serve alcohol to an individual who is already intoxicated.
If you or someone you love has been involved in a drunk driving accident, you may have grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit against the business that last sold alcohol to the drunk driver. Contact the Des Moines dram shop liability lawyers of LaMarca Law Group, P.C. today at 877-327-2600 to discuss your legal rights and options.
About Dram Shop Liability
Most people are aware that businesses serving alcohol must check an individual’s identification to make sure that he or she is of age. What they may not know, however, is that businesses also assume a responsibility to refuse to serve anyone who is intoxicated or will become intoxicated if served another drink. When a business negligently serves alcohol to a drunken customer, the establishment may be held liable if the patron causes an accident or injury while drunk. Under the law, the establishment may be required to compensate accident victims for their injuries and damages.
