According to Massachusetts law, it is illegal for anyone — including an individual entertaining in the privacy of his or her own home — to serve alcoholic beverages to a person who is already visibly intoxicated. Proprietors, bartenders, other servers and so-called “social hosts” are obligated by law to avoid serving alcoholic beverages to intoxicated people.

If someone serves alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person and that person subsequently causes harm to himself or herself, to another person or to property, both the server and the establishment where the alcohol was served can be held financially liable for the harm caused.

Liquor liability claims are not easy to win. Experienced legal representation is important for anyone seeking to recover compensation under Massachusetts’ dram shop and social host liability law.

If you were seriously injured in a car crash caused by a drunk driver, someone whose blood alcohol level was over the legal limit, that fact alone is not sufficient to bring legal action.
