Green Bay Dram Shop Liability Lawyer

In drunk driving cases, the inebriated driver is obviously the main party at fault for the accident. However, in certain situations, there may be others who contributed to the accident, such as the establishment that sold the intoxicated individual the alcohol. In Wisconsin, there are laws in place to help drunk driving accident victims ensure that all parties at fault for the incident are held responsible. Dram shop liability laws exist to hold the alcohol vendor accountable for providing alcohol to someone under the age of 21 who later caused a drunk driving accident.

If you or someone you love has been harmed in a drunk driving accident with a minor, you may want to consider seeking financial compensation from the alcohol vendor as well as the driver. A dedicated Green Bay dram shop liability attorney from Habush Habush & Rottier S.C. could help you win the compensation that you need and deserve after your accident.

Proving Dram Shop Liability

Dram shop liability laws are different in every state, but in Wisconsin, they are limited to cases that involve selling alcohol to minors. In order to prove that a dram shop is at least partially liable in a drunk driving case, you will have to prove the following:

  • The consumption of alcohol was a contributing factor in the accident
  • The alcohol vendor was aware that the buyer was under the legal drinking age
  • The vendor reasonably should have been aware that the buyer was under the legal drinking age

If you can successfully prove all of the above, the injured party could be able to receive additional financial compensation from the person responsible for providing the driver with alcohol.
