Taverns, pubs, bars and other establishments that serve alcohol have a duty to not overserve patrons. A drunk individual who gets behind the wheel can cause serious injuries to others on the road. If you were injured by a drunk driver, a lawyer can help you hold accountable the negligent tavern, bar, pub or establishment whose staff overserved the drunk driver.
As a customer of a bar, pub or tavern, you have the right to be treated with respect by all staff. If you have been injured by a bouncer, security or other staff member of a bar, pub or tavern, you may have the right to compensation.

Handling Bar Owner Liability Claims
Bar owners must take care not to overserve patrons. When a patron appears intoxicated, bartenders, waiters and other staff have a duty to stop serving that individual.
Bars are not the only establishments that are held to this standard. Tavern liability also extends to other alcohol-serving establishments such as:
- Events with a bar
To advance a strong case on behalf of our clients, our lawyers thoroughly examine and gather the evidence necessary to build the claim, including gathering and reviewing eyewitness statements.
