Bartender Negligence and Drunk Driving Accidents in Pennsylvania
If you or a loved one was injured in an auto accident that was caused by a drunk driver, you may already know that you can pursue compensation against the drunk driver through a personal injury claim. What you may not realize is that you may also have a potential cause of action against the bar, hotel, restaurant or another alcohol provider who served alcohol to the drunk driver.
Pennsylvania has tough dram shop laws that create civil liability for alcohol-serving establishments under certain circumstances. Specifically, establishments may not serve individuals who are obviously intoxicated. You may also have a basis to pursue a personal injury claim if a server provided alcohol to someone who was not of legal age to drink, and who subsequently caused an accident.
If you need to speak with an experienced personal injury attorney about a drunk driving accident or possible dram shop claim, contact Berger and Green in Pittsburgh. We represent clients throughout Pennsylvania in motor vehicle accident claims.
Experienced Representation Is Critical
If you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk driver, you may assume that you have a “slam-dunk” case. After all, it may be very clear that the other driver caused the accident and the police report may even note that the other driver smelled of alcohol.
Unfortunately, there is no such thing as a “slam-dunk” case in the field of personal injury law. Several factors can easily turn what seems like a simple case into something far more complex. Insurance defense counsel are highly adept at denying liability and minimizing damages.
