Wisconsin Dram Shop Lawyers
When an establishment serves alcohol, they are required by law to follow regulations on service. These laws are designed to protect people and it follows that failing to adhere to them can and often does lead to someone getting hurt. In Wisconsin, bars that serve alcohol have a responsibility to refrain from serving someone whom they know to be a minor. When these restrictions are ignored, underage individuals may become intoxicated and subsequently cause an accident on the road.

Dram Shop Violations in Wisconsin
Laws on serving alcohol vary from state to state. In Wisconsin, the dram shop laws essentially state that:
- A bar, restaurant, or other establishment may not serve to someone who they know to be a minor
- If a minor presents an ID which appears to be valid, it is possible that the server may not be held liable
With dram shop cases, the plaintiff must typically establish that the accident would not have occurred without the instance of negligent serving to a minor.
If you have been in a car accident that was caused by an intoxicated underage drinker, the law provides you with the chance to seek compensation from those responsible. Contact the Wisconsin dram shop attorneys of Habush Habush & Rottier, S.C., at 800-242-2874.
