Have You Been Injured By A Drunk Driver?
Car accidents are some of the most common, and tragically, most serious kinds of personal injuries. When they are caused in part by a bar or restaurant over-serving a patron, another layer of grief and agony accompanies these tragedies. Businesses that serve and sell alcohol are legally obligated to adhere to state dram shop and liquor liability laws. In Iowa, an establishment is legally forbidden to serve and sell alcohol to an intoxicated person or to a person who will reach the point of intoxication if served.
In Iowa, it is important to note that you are entitled to punitive damages for these injuries, and there are no caps (or limitation) on the amount you can be compensated for over-serving liability. Similarly, in these types of cases there can be multiple defendants, adding another layer of complexity to these cases.
If you or a loved one has been injured in one of these accidents, you have six months to give the establishment notice that you are pursuing a suit. As such, it is critical to reach out to an attorney as soon as possible.
