Dram Shop & Liquor Liability
When bars, restaurants, and other establishments inappropriately serve or over serve persons, they can be liable for resulting damages. In limited circumstances, homeowners or tenants can be liable for damages arising
from the service of alcohol at their property, even in a private setting; also known as “social host” liability. Each claim is different and our attorneys have considered a multitude of fact patterns under Rhode Island’s Liquor Liability Act and history of case law on this subject. We have assisted our clients in resolving many significant claims involving severe injuries, and death arising
, from allegations of liquor liability. In recent years, especially, we have handled a diverse array of liquor liability claims and we know what questions need to be answered and what investigation needs to be done to ensure favorable results.
