Orlando Personal Injury Lawyer

Florida Liquor Liability Lawyer

With happy hour "two for one" specials and jumbo-sized drinks, many Florida bars go out of their way to promote over-consumption of alcohol. These promotions may do more than fatten the bar or restaurant's bottom line. They can put the rest of us at risk.

At The Umansky Law Firm, our lawyers represent victims of drunk driver accidents in Orlando and other communities in central Florida. In seeking compensation for our clients, we won't stop at the person who was driving drunk. If a bar, restaurant or social host over-served alcohol to the drunk driver in violation of Florida law, we may go after the liquor establishment as well.

Dram Shop Liability and Florida Law

In certain circumstances, liquor-serving establishments and social hosts can be held responsible for accidents caused by the people they serve or sell alcohol. This area of law is known as dram shop liability. "Dram shop" is a legal term for an establishment that serves alcoholic beverages.

Florida law holds individuals and companies responsible for injuries and damages caused by the people they serve or sell alcoholic beverages in two situations:

  • The person served was under the age of 21
  • The server knew the person served was visibly drunk or habitually addicted to alcoholic beverages

Proving that a bar or restaurant should have known someone was visibly drunk or "habitually addicted" to alcohol can be difficult to do. Our experience as former prosecutors allows us to give you an honest evaluation of your case so that you will know your options from the start. We offer a free initial consultation to discuss your case.
