Simple logic says that it is easier for a person or establishment that is serving alcohol to be responsible for how it is dispensed than it is for someone who is drinking alcohol to be responsible for controlling his or her intake. However, the law has long recognized that being under the influence of alcohol does not absolve a person of responsibility for his or her own actions. The law also clearly addresses the responsibility of bars, restaurants, hosts, and other servers of alcohol for dispensing it.
Liquor liability and alcohol server liability cases are complex, involving numerous third parties and sources of compensation. Parties held liable can include individual servers, bars, restaurants, business owners, private clubs, homeowners, event sponsors, and others.
Attorney Arthur F. Licata has extensive experience with litigation involving alcohol server liability. Arthur was the plaintiff's lawyer in a landmark case, Tobin v. Norwood Country Club, Inc involving this issue.
Arthur received an Outstanding Citizen Award from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers (MADD) and he has also served on the Massachusetts chapter's board.
