Champaign Dram Shop Attorneys
When an injury or death is caused by a drunk driver, the victims and those they are close to experience a great deal of emotions in connection with the incident. There is likely to be pain, sadness, disbelief, anger and a strong sense of injustice when an innocent person is hurt by an individual who made the selfish decision to drive drunk. But there is a way to pursue justice not only in regards to the drunk driver but to the establishment that decided to negligently serve him or her excessive amounts of alcohol.
In Illinois, dram shop law allows the victim or family of the victim of a drunken driving accident to take legal action against the person who served the drunk driver alcohol. Liability under Illinois dram shop law also extends to lessors or owners of the bar or restaurant.
