Dallas Personal Injury Lawyers and Car Accident Attorneys

We know what it takes to win.

Dram Shop Liability

Bar Owner & Liquor Liability

A motorist should never get behind the wheel of a car if he or she has been drinking. The onus falls on the driver to know when he or she has had too many and to call a cab or designate a sober driver. It is never appropriate to drive while intoxicated.  Those who fail to abide by this rule put themselves and others in harm’s way.

Additionally, it is the responsibility of businesses that serve the alcohol to make sure no one unfit to drive gets behind the wheel.  Dram Shop Liability, as it is called, refers to the responsibility of any liquor serving business. It is their job to cut off any person that they feel is intoxicated to the point that he/she might be dangerous behind the wheel.

We’ve Recovered Over $64,000,000 for Our Clients

Bars, nightclubs and restaurants all fall under this Dram Shop Act. The details are very specific, indicating that serving alcohol or beer to a visibly intoxicated customer, who then goes out and drives a car – is all that is needed to be held liable. This liability is a very serious matter, one that we are very familiar with.

Our Promise

With more than 25 years of experience, The Law Offices of W.T. Johnson has helped individuals in the Dallas-Fort Worth area receive appropriate compensation for the negligence of others in their personal injury claims. When liquor is involved, the stakes are higher. Wrongful death is unfortunately a large part of many of these types of personal injury claims. Our goal is to get our clients back to their lives as quickly as possible, in an effort to put the horrific accident behind them. To that end, we will make sure to go after not only the driver him/herself but also the establishment that served them.

Insurance companies aren’t usually that open about providing fair compensation in regards to the Dram Shop Act. However, with a thorough investigation we feel confident in our ability to deliver what is fair to our clients.  Moreover, we’re willing to take the matter to court should an appropriate settlement be unreachable.  Being fully compensated for your injuries is our priority, and we’ll work hard to reach that goal.
