Commercial Liquor Liability

Injured By a Drunk Driver? We Can Help You Purse Justice Against Negligent Bars And Restaurants That Over Served Them

Serving Vancouver, WA, and Portland, OR, the Harlan Law Firm is highly skilled in handling claims based on commercial liquor liability.

When a restaurant, bar, or special event venue serves alcohol, there's always an inherent risk. Under the alcohol law, the establishment's owner could face legal challenges if they serve a patron who subsequently gets drunk and causes an accident, harming themselves or others.

Washington's Stance on Commercial Liquor Liability: Protecting the Innocent Person

In the Portland/Vancouver Metro area, businesses are required by Washington state regulations to maintain a $300,000 commercial liquor liability insurance policy. If you have suffered due to a driver who got intoxicated in a bar or tavern while they were visibly intoxicated, you have the right to pursue a personal injury lawsuit for commercial liquor liability. In this context, you'll be targeting the establishment—a restaurant, bar, or tavern—serving alcohol to the visibly intoxicated person.

The High Cost of Alcohol Violations: When Care Isn't Exercised

If said patron, after leaving the establishment, causes harm or even death to innocent individuals, that business can be held liable for the damages. Such accidents can have devastating lifelong consequences. These can range from medical expenses, property damages, and permanent scarring to intangible yet profound mental anguish.
