Important Things to Know:
Dram shop laws in Illinois provide liability against the bars and nightclubs who served the intoxicated individual. This liability does not require negligence by the bar club owner; rather, it simply needs to be shown that the bar served or provided the alcohol to the intoxicated person illegally. The insurance company bar or club will do everything that they can to dispute the allegation that the person was intoxicated or that he got intoxicated at their location. That’s why you should obtain the services of a skilled personal injury attorney.
Important Things To Do:
- Obtain the names and phone numbers of all witnesses who have knowledge of the fact that the individual was intoxicated and that the individual got intoxicated at the defendant’s bar or nightclub.
- File a police report and have it documented that the individual is intoxicated.
- Get the names of bar employees who may have personal knowledge of the incident.
- Hire the services of an attorney immediately.
