Bar, Tavern, and Nightclub Liability

Any organization that sells alcohol owes a duty to their customers and other people invited on their premises to keep them reasonably safe on their premises and to ensure that alcohol is not over-served.  Often, bars, nightclubs, and taverns fall short of their duties and injuries happen, including injuries sustained in:

  • Bar fights
  • Bouncer assaults
  • Falls
  • Drunk driving
  • Motor vehicle collisions
  • Over-serving
  • Exposure to cold

Liquor serving establishments are under a duty to train and supervise servers of alcohol to be aware of the level of intoxication and aggressive tendencies of their guests.  If a customer leaves a bar, nightclub, or tavern in an obviously impaired condition after being served and sustains an injury or injures someone else, the establishment could be held liable.  In addition, establishments that use excessive or unreasonable force to restrain or eject customers are liable for the injuries that those customers sustain. These instances require the assistance of a nightclub liability lawyer.
