Dram Shop Liability Attorneys

When you are the victim of a drunk driver, you can suffer not only physical damage, but also suffer a heavy financial burden as you are left to contend with medical bills, vehicle repairs, and other adverse effects. Under dram shop liability law, you may be able to pursue financial compensation from the establishment(s) that contributed to the drunk driver’s inebriation.

If you or someone you know has been injured by a drunk driver, and you believe that an establishment significantly contributed to that driver’s intoxication, a civil lawsuit may offer you the best opportunity to recover the financial resources that you need. Contact the experienced Denver dram shop liability attorneys of Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., at (303) 423-1770 to discuss your legal rights and options in this trying time.

Common Elements of Dram Shop Liability Lawsuit

Dram shop liability laws vary from state to state, and not all states have them. The basic premise is the same, but the specific restrictions and actions that can be brought can be dramatically different. The following are important provisions of Colorado’s dram shop law:

  • The establishment may be found liable if a patron was “willfully and knowingly” served despite being underage or while “visibly intoxicated”
  • The civil lawsuit must be initiated within 1 year of the improper service
  • The intoxicated party and many who are directly affiliated with that party cannot sue
  • Currently the maximum liability is $150,000


At Hull & Zimmerman, P.C., we are honored to help accident victims in their time of need, and take our responsibility as personal injury lawyers incredibly seriously. We know how important it is for victims to secure the full and fair compensation they need following a serious accident, and that is why we take a hands-on, personalized approach to every case we handle.
