Put simply, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Bars, restaurants, liquor stores--these businesses have rules to follow. If they break these rules, and people get hurt as a result, why should they get away with that when there's a family out there whose life was shattered into pieces?

Dram shop provides an opportunity for those grieving families to exercise their rights and confront those negligent businesses with the evidence and experienced legal strategy necessary to hold them accountable for their negligence. It remains to be seen if steps were taken here to ensure the victim's loved ones are getting the full story.
