Dram Shop Liability
MAAA has extensive experience in defending bars and restaurants in dram shop/liquor liability actions. Such causes of action are based upon allegations that obviously intoxicated or under-aged customers were served alcohol and then caused injuries to third-parties, who then make a claim against the establishment that served them.
Claims are often based on subjective theories regarding observations and levels of intoxication. Defending such cases requires a careful investigation, analysis of the relevant details, and obtaining qualified expert reports based on the relevant facts. MAAA has extensive experience in defending such cases, and has been successful in achieving favorable resolutions.
