Restaurant/Bar Liability

Florida's dram shop law provides a potential statutory cause of action for anyone who has been injured by certain alleged intoxicated persons against vendors in the business of selling alcohol. 

Successful defense of claims brought pursuant to Florida's dram shop law requires intimate knowledge of the various elements of proof necessary for a finding of liability as well as which defenses can preclude such a finding. VLG represents restaurants, bars, taverns and other vendors throughout the state of Florida. Our liquor liability attorneys are well versed in handling such claims and have the specialized knowledge of the defenses and nuances of this area of the law that is essential to defend our clients in a cost-effective manner. VLG works with our clients to accomplish cost-effective solutions to early resolution, where the case dictates the same or where our clients' philosophy mandates settlement. However, if a trial is needed in order to resolve a case, our attorneys will aggressively try any case and have proven trial results in this specialized area of the law.
