Sheboygan Dram Shop Liability Lawyers
Victims of drunk driving accidents often don’t know where to turn for help after their accident. While in situations such as this the blame can easily be place on the drunk driver, another party might also share in this blame – the establishment that provided alcohol to the drunk driver, if that person is under the age of 21. Dram shop liability laws allow a person who was victimized by an underage drunk driver to potentially seek legal recourse from the company, restaurant, bar, or person who provided alcohol to a minor who drove while under the influence of an intoxicant. In most cases, legal representatives look for evidence that the establishment that provided alcohol acted negligently in providing the alcohol, and if found guilty, that entity might be legally responsible for the injured person’s injuries and costs.

In the state of Wisconsin, dram shop liability applies to establishments or dram shops that supply alcohol to someone who is underage. If an establishment is found guilty of this, it could face:
- Heavy fines
- Loss of its business license
- Loss of its alcohol license
If an establishment is found guilty, it may face additional legal penalties, in addition to potentially owing an injured person financial compensation.
