DUI and Dramshop laws… Liability for DUI’s can extend to bars and clubs

Most jurisdictions have dramshop laws.  These are laws that put liability on bars, clubs, and other places that serve alcohol.  If those places observe a patron becoming too intoxicated, and continue to serve the person alcohol, they can be held liable for any injury to other parties.

So for instance, if someone gets drunk at a bar, and then goes out into drive and kills someone as a result of intoxication, the bar may be held liable to the people injured (or family of people killed) by the drunk driver.

A Michigan club has settled with the family of a man who was killed in a 2006 crash.  The bar served the man shots and beers until he passed out and vomited. He then drove home, and crashed his car, causing a nine-vehicle crash that injured three people, and killed one.
