When people are intoxicated, their ability to make good decisions for themselves and those around them is stifled. That’s why bartenders are taught that they cannot over-serve customers who show signs of heavy intoxication. When they do—and something goes wrong—you may find yourself seriously injured in a vehicle accident or a bar fight.
If someone who was served too much alcohol harmed you, you can sue the bartender for negligence. The state dram shop laws in Texas and Oklahoma hold servers accountable for some injuries caused after a customer was over-served.
Don’t Let a Bartender’s Negligence Go Unpunished
Bartenders have both a moral obligation and a legal duty to stop serving alcohol to someone who acts or appears intoxicated. Unfortunately, many bartenders will ignore this law in an effort to sell more alcohol and earn more tips. When they do, innocent people on the roads or in the restaurant may be the ones who pay the price.
If an intoxicated person injured you, you have the right to sue the restaurant’s insurance company for damages. The problem is, this process tends to be difficult. Proving that someone was overly intoxicated or acted negligently as a result of being served too much alcohol is not easy.
