Florida Dram Shop Liability Laws
Florida alcohol liability laws fall under the Dram Shop Act. This state statute outlines the cases in which an establishment or individual can be held responsible for injuries caused by someone they provided with alcohol.
In most Florida personal injury and wrongful death cases involving intoxication, the provider of the alcohol cannot be held liable. The main exception to this rule is when the establishment or individual provides alcohol to a minor or to a person with a known drinking problem. In such cases, liability on the part of the provider may exist. By reviewing the details of your drunk driving accident case, an attorney at our Bradenton firm can better assess which involved parties should be part of a lawsuit.
