Dram Shop Claim

Client was hit by a drunk driver that had consumed significant amounts of alcohol at a local Portland bar.  The drunk driver had a blood alcohol level of 0.24%  – three times the legal limit.  Client had serious back and neck injuries requiring surgery and months of rehabilitation.  Unfortunately, the drunk driver carried only $25,000 in insurance.  John sued the drunk driver and also brought a “dram shop” claim against the bar that overserved the drunk driver.   After years of battling with the bar’s insurance company, the case settled for a total of $500,000.
