What are Dram Shop Laws?
A dram shop law imposes liability on drinking establishments, such as bars, taverns and restaurants who serve alcohol to patrons who are already visibly or obviously intoxicated. Florida's dram shop laws provide that the drinking establishment in question may have to pay damages to third-parties who are injured as a result of over-serving a patron.
