How Dram Shop Laws Are Involved

In Massachusetts, dram shop laws forbid the selling or the serving of alcohol to intoxicated persons. If an intoxicated person then causes injury or death to an innocent third party or to him or herself, the sellers and servers who provided the alcoholic beverages to that person are held legally liable. Under the dram shop laws, "sellers and servers" can include: homeowners, bartenders, wait staff, managers and owners.

The establishments liable under the dram shop laws include:

  • Homes
  • Bars
  • Taverns
  • Restaurants
  • Night clubs
  • Liquor stores
  • Sports stadiums
  • Fraternities and sororities

If you have been injured or a family member has been killed by a drunk driver, it is in your best interest to contact a knowledgeable personal injury lawyer who has the experience to identify all who are liable and to hold them accountable.
