Kansas,Missouri, and Arizona Drunk Driver Accident Attorneys: Holding Negligent Bar Owners Accountable
The bar and nightclub industry is extremely profitable. Unfortunately, alcohol can also be exceedingly dangerous; a night out on the town followed by a drive home can have disastrous consequences. This is the reason that bars and nightclubs are heavily regulated. They must obtain liquor licenses in order to serve alcohol. These establishments must also be responsible for who they sell alcohol to. There are laws that allow negligent bar owners to be held responsible for the damage caused by their intoxicated patrons - the Dram Shop Laws of Kansas, Missouri, and Arizona. The drunk driver accident attorneys at The Law Offices of Dr. Samuel K. Cullan have extensive experience using Dram Shop laws to gain restitution for our clients.

Negligent Bar Owners
One of the most painful tragedies a family can face is the serious personal injury or wrongful death of a child, spouse, or parent due to the negligence of a drunk driver. Many deaths or injuries are caused by repeat offenders. These are people who have been arrested for drunk driving on multiple occasions. Many of these deaths are caused because bars and nightclubs engage in profiteering by serving alcohol to teenagers or college kids or others when they knew or should have known the person was drunk.
Busy bars and nightclubs often fail to check identification, allowing under-age kids to become intoxicated. Many also encourage young people to drink excessively as a way of celebrating a 21st birthday. When the bar closes, these individuals who are too drunk to drive are pushed out the door, risking their own safety as well as the safety of others. This is considered a from of negligence on the part of the nightclub or bar owner, and our Kansas, Arizona, and Missouri drunk driver accident attorneys can help you hold the negligent party accountable.
Dram Shop Laws
