Holding bars accountable.
Forum Law Group is experienced in holding bars accountable for over-serving their customers.
Oregon's Dram Shop Act allows those injured by a customer to bring a claim against a bar if they served the customer while he or she was visibly intoxicated.
Most often these cases involve an over-served driver who causes injury to another driver, passenger, bicyclist or pedestrian. Claims may be brought against the drunk driver, the bar, or both.
Dram Shop cases are highly specialized, involving complicated scientific evidence as well as sophisticated research and investigation. Forum Law Group is well equipped for all these issues.
