Dram Shop Liability
Under Connecticut dram shop liability laws, bars and restaurants can sometimes be held accountable when they serve someone who causes a drunk driving accident. This is true when they serve someone who is underage or who is already clearly intoxicated. Homeowners can also be held legally accountable when they provide alcohol to minors or allow minors to drink on their property.
The law requires these businesses and homeowners to pay damages to people who were injured in drunk driving accidents. The law also holds them accountable to the surviving families of people killed in drunk driving accidents.
