Bars, restaurants, liquor stores-even private parties-that serve alcohol to someone who is obviously intoxicated can be held liable for injuries that result. People injured by drunk drivers or those hurt in a bar fights can sue the business or individual that over-served the person.

The Missouri and Kansas lawyers of Monsees & Mayer P.C, help clients recover fair compensation in personal injury or fatality claims caused by the negligent actions of others, including drunk drivers and those who may have contributed to their intoxication.

Proving Dram Shop Liability

Dram shop liability cases can be difficult to prove. First we must prove that the person who served the alcohol to an intoxicated customer knew, or should have known, the customer was intoxicated. Second, it must be proved that the alcohol served by the business contributed to the events ultimately causing injuries. A witness to the obvious intoxication is required.

Our dram shop liability attorneys will thoroughly investigate your incident using professional investigators and accident reconstruction specialists to determine the exact sequence of events, and how a negligent driver or assailant became drunk. Once we discover who over-served the person who harmed you, dram shop liability laws allow us to take aggressive action against everyone whose actions or inactions may have contributed to your injuries.
