Missouri Dram Shop Liability

Can a tavern or bar be held liable for injuries caused by their intoxicated patrons? Missouri law provides a cause of action against a bar or tavern that sells an intoxicating beverage to a minor (under 21 years of age) or a "visibly intoxicated person," if an injury occurs as a result of that individual's intoxication.


Wrongful Death Actions In Missouri

Wrongful Death is a broad practice area that encompasses many other areas of the law. In the olden days, there was no cause of action if the negligence or intentional tort resulted in death. The theory was that the cause of action belonged to the injured person only, and extinguished when that person passed away. Obviously this resulted in extreme injustice where the basis for the tort was also the cause of death. Fortunately, the Missouri Legislature has made it possible for family members to sue for the loss of a family member.
