Alcohol can be dangerous, which is why great responsibility falls on the shoulders of those profiting from its distribution and sale. In Pennsylvania and New Jersey, it is illegal for a liquor license holder, such as a bar or restaurant, to serve patrons who are minors (under the legal drinking age of 21) or who are visibly intoxicated. A liquor license holder can be sued if this law is violated and another person is injured.
If you’ve been injured by an establishment selling liquor to a minor or a visibly intoxicated person, you can hold that establishment liable for injuries – even if that minor or visibly intoxicated person was you. Dion, Solomon & Shapiro can help.
