Case Description

In a tragic turn of events, our client lost their life due to a motor vehicle collision caused by a drunk driver in Clackamas County, Oregon. The defendant had consumed alcohol at three separate establishments before getting behind the wheel, displaying clear signs of intoxication. Our legal team pursued a Dram Shop claim, alleging that these establishments served alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person, contributing to the fatal accident.


The case presented several challenges, including establishing liability against the establishments that served alcohol to the defendant. Proving that they knowingly served alcohol to an already intoxicated individual required meticulous investigation and evidence gathering. Additionally, navigating the legal complexities of a Dram Shop claim added another layer of difficulty to the case.


Through diligent negotiation and legal advocacy, we were able to secure a combined settlement totaling $1,075,000 from all parties involved. This significant settlement not only provided financial compensation for the loss suffered by our client's loved ones but also served as a form of accountability for the establishments that contributed to the tragic outcome.
