When you sustain injuries which are due, even in part, to the involvement of alcohol, you may have a dram shop liability claim. In Illinois, liquor liability laws (dram shop laws) may hold alcohol servers/bars responsible for harm that intoxicated or underage patrons cause to other people or, in some cases, to themselves, after they are involved in a bar fight or they drink and drive and cause accidents. Collison, Ltd. represents victims in Dram Shop actions against bars, nightclubs, restaurants, and grocery/convenient stores for injuries and damages caused by patrons where alcohol was a contributing factor.
If you think you may have a dram Shop claim, it is important to begin the necessary investigation and get witness statements as soon as possible in order to build a strong case. If you would like to speak with an attorney from Collison, Ltd. about a possible lawsuit, please contact our office at the first opportunity.
