Dram Shop (Alcohol) Liability

Dram Shop laws prohibit sales of alcohol to certain categories of people. Court interpretation of these laws addresses accidents that result from the improper sale of alcohol. Under New York law, it is unlawful to sell alcohol to people "actually or apparently" under the age of 21 and to people who are "visibly intoxicated." And courts will allow recovery for injuries caused by people who sell alcohol in violation of this law.
