Six-Figure Confidential Settlement
The law firm settled a case against a bar/tavern for overserving alcohol to an individual who left the bar and caused a motor vehicle collision. Under the law, a bar can be held liable for serving alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person. While this is seldom admitted, we hired a toxicologist to confirm that the individual was so intoxicated that there was no way there were not signs of visible intoxication. There was a separate settlement with the driver.
