Have you been hit by a drunk driver and, as a result, injured?

Has your loved one been hit by a drunk driver and, as a result, been injured or killed?

Under Minnesota Dram Shop Law, you can recover from bars, restaurants, and other places where liquor is sold (dram shops) if the dram shop sells or furnishes alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person and death or injury results.

Dram shop claims can be filed by an individual, spouse, child, parent, guardian, employer, or one who incurs monetary loss.

On average, someone is killed by a drunk driver every 40 minutes. In 2007, an estimated 12, 998 people died in drunk driving related crashes.

Any experienced Minnesota dram shop lawyer knows that the successful prosecution of a dram shop claim requires strong knowledge of Minnesota Dram Shop Law.

Minnesota has very specific dram shop laws. The Schmidt-Salita Law Team has 75 Years of combined experience in handling successful dram shop claims.

Minnesota dram shop claims can arise against the driver’s insurance company and/or from the third party bar, nightclub, restaurant, or establishment that served alcohol to the obviously intoxicated person.
