Claim Examples You Could Face

A patron was served three beers accompanied with three shots of whiskey by an untrained bartender over the course of three hours. He then stopped at an attached liquor store where he purchased a half pint of whiskey. Upon leaving, the patron drove 500 feet before colliding head-on with a single passenger vehicle. Both drivers were seriously injured. The case settled for $200,000 with expense costs paid of $19,400.

A woman was served 11 or 12 alcoholic beverages by the bartender. After leaving the bar, she got into her vehicle and struck a 22-year-old student who died from her injuries. The student’s family sued and won a $900,000 settlement with an additional $63,000 in incurred expenses.
