Wisconsin Dram Shop Liability Attorneys
Dram shop liability laws are in place to prevent the sale of alcohol to intoxicated individuals. In the state of Wisconsin, dram shop laws apply only to the sale or distribution of alcohol to minors. If an establishment fails to follow these regulations, they are putting both the offenders and all those around them at risk of serious injury.
If you or a loved one has suffered injury in an accident with an intoxicated minor, you may be entitled to compensation from the establishment that served alcohol to the minor.

Understanding Dram Shop Liability Laws
When a drunk driver under the age of 18 causes an accident, more than one party may be liable. The minor who is driving is clearly responsible. However, whoever sold him or her alcohol may also be held liable under Wisconsin dram shop laws.
In the event of an accident, both of these parties may be held financially responsible for the victim’s injuries. Compensation for medical bills, loss of work wages, and pain and suffering may be available for victims who take legal action.
Unfortunately, no matter how many precautions we take on the road, there is no way to control the negligence of others. If you or a loved one has been injured in a car accident with an intoxicated minor, you may have grounds for legal action.
