Liquor Liability Defense

Liquor liability issues may arise if an individual who was injured by a drunk driver or intoxicated individual alleges that an establishment served the person after he or she was visibly intoxicated. There are also special tavern premises liability issues to consider if an individual is injured in a tavern. These are serious legal issues and can put the future of a business in jeopardy if not defended by competent and experienced civil defense attorneys.

The lawyers at Harris, Karstaedt, Jamison & Powers, P.C., are uniquely qualified to provide defendants in liquor liability and tavern premises liability cases with representation, and to aid insurance carriers and their clients in understanding how Colorado's liquor liability and premises liability laws apply. Liquor liability is strictly regulated by statutes.

In Colorado, recovery against a vendor may only be had if the allegedly injured party proves that a vendor "willfully and knowingly" sold alcoholic beverages to a minor or someone who was "visibly intoxicated."

Premises liability is a subset of highly developed Premises Liability case law and statutes.

In Colorado, recovery against a tavern owner may only be had if an alleged "dangerous condition" was one that the tavern owner knew or should have known about, and if the tavern owner should have foreseen that injury would result from the dangerous condition.
