Drunk driving

Drunk driving is a senseless act that can lead to devastating consequences for victims of accidents caused by intoxicated drivers.  But sometimes bars and other liquor-service establishments also share the blame for serving patrons who are obviously intoxicated.  When they put profits over safety by continuing to serve an inebriated patron instead of cutting them off, bars can be liable for accidents caused by the drunken patron under Arizona law.  Gallagher & Kennedy attorneys excel in investigating and pursuing cases against irresponsible bars and other establishments whose failure to comply with the law and serve customers responsibly causes accidents resulting in death and catastrophic injuries.  Representative cases included:

  • $2 million settlement against a liquor establishment.
  • $1.8 million settlement against several liquor establishments.
  • $1 million settlement for an infant death Dram Shop Liability.
  • $1 million settlement for families of individuals overserved at strip club.
