Dram Shop/Bar Liability Lawyers

If you suffered an injury or lost a loved one in a motor vehicle accident caused by a drunk driver in North Carolina, it is usually very obvious who will be held liable — the drunk behind the wheel. What many people may not realize, though, is that liability can extend to the social host responsible for allowing the driver to drink too much, and then get behind the wheel of a car.

Under North Carolina's dram shop laws, bar owners, restaurants and even individual party hosts may be held liable for compensating victims of drunk drivers on our roads. Finding and suing the responsible parties often requires diligent investigation and aggressive legal action to hold them accountable.

Turn to Britton Law, P.A., in Fayetteville for experienced, effective representation in your DUI accident injury or wrongful death litigation matter. Our personal injury attorney has decades of experience helping our clients recover the full and fair amount of money damages they are entitled to — from every party responsible for the negligence.

We can help you recover money damages for:

  • Medical treatment and ongoing physical therapy and care
  • Lost earnings during your recovery and over a lifetime
  • Pain and suffering

Punitive Damages May Be Available

Under North Carolina General Statutes Chapter 1D, parties found guilty of "egregiously wrongful acts" may be ordered to pay punitive damages, in addition to compensatory damages for injuries resulting from the accident. This liability may extend to bars and restaurants and other social hosts if it can be determined that gross negligence or criminal misconduct was evident in serving excessive alcohol.
