Bar Overserving and Connecticut Dram Shop Law

December 22, 2011

This holiday season many of us will gather with friends and family to celebrate the New Year and enjoy each other’s company. It is a festive time for many. However, with these gatherings, studies have shown that there is an increase in the number of people who drive while intoxicated. Too often these people cause accidents and injure others.

In the last few years, Connecticut toughened the laws that regulate bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. If a bar or restaurant serves alcohol to an intoxicated person who then causes an accident, the bar or restaurant can be held responsible. Connecticut’s “Dram Shop Law” says that the bar or restaurant may be held responsible for up to $250,000 to the injured person.

Tremont Sheldon Robinson Mahoney was one of the first firms in Connecticut to try a case to verdict under Connecticut’s new Dram Shop Law. Click here to read about a successful recovery for our client in a bar overserving case.
