Dram Shop Liability
Rhode Island’s laws state the establishment serving the alcohol may be held responsible. If the alcohol vendor served a minor or a person visibly intoxicated, the vendor is also at fault. A skilled dram shop liability attorney knows how to find the evidence. Michael will work hard to find evidence and witnesses. He will fully utilize his experience, skill, and determination. You deserve to be compensated by all guilty parties.
There are two types of dram shop liability:
Negligence: This means the server either knew (or any responsible person would have known) the person was a minor or intoxicated.
Recklessness: If someone acts recklessly, they disregard high risks which danger others. If the server knew the person was a minor or drunk and they choose to serve them anyway, they might have been reckless. We just have to prove they knowingly ignored the risks involved.
Hiring a dram shop liability attorney is time sensitive. You must file your lawsuit within three years of the accident.
