New York’s Dram Shop Act

New York General Obligations Law 11-101, also known as the Dram Shop Act, states that an establishment can be held liable if it sells alcohol to anyone under the age of 21, a visibly intoxicated person, or a known habitual drunkard, who then causes an injury or damage to a person, property, means of support, or otherwise.

Having the right team by your side can do more than assist you in the legal process; it can help give you peace of mind. Our team of experienced car accident attorneys can help you understand everything you need to know. The sooner you contact us, the sooner we can help get you the benefits you deserve.
