What actions give rise to liability for a bar, tavern, or liquor store in a dram shop action or liquor liability case?

There’s an alcohol related incident. You know that somebody was at a bar drinking or a restaurant drinking, so when can they be held accountable? When can they be held responsible? Two ways. Both of them require that that bar knowingly do something wrong. Number one, if they knowingly serve a minor, they’re going to be in trouble. Number two, they knowingly serve an alcoholic. That means they know the person is an alcoholic and they go ahead and serve them anyway. In Florida, those are really the two ways that a bar or restaurant could be held accountable in an alcohol related incident. Sounds tough to prove, it is tough to prove, but experienced lawyers are able to get it done for you.
