DRAM SHOP LIABILITY
In Pennsylvania, it’s not always the intoxicated driver who is civilly liable for the damages he or she causes. The name of that legal doctrine is “Dram Shop Law.” A business or even another person (social host) who gives alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person or minor is also legally responsible for the damages that the person subsequently causes. The Dram Shop Law could also apply when one furnishes alcohol to a minor, serves alcohol after an establishment closes, or serves alcohol without a valid license.
