Bar and Tavern Liability
Kitchener-Waterloo Personal Injury Lawyers for Bar and Tavern Liability Claims
Bars, taverns, and other commercial establishments which are licensed to serve alcohol must comply with obligations under the Liquor License Act, and all serving staff must be certified by Smart Serve. These establishments have a legal duty not to overserve patrons and not to serve visibly intoxicated people. They must also take reasonable steps to prevent an intoxicated person from driving, and must contact the police immediately where they are unable to do so. In addition to compliance with liquor licensing laws, bars and taverns are also required to keep their premises safe and hazard free, in order to avoid injuries to patrons.
Despite these legal obligations, accidents do happen, including physical altercations between patrons, excessive use of force by bouncers and/or security staff, or car accidents and assaults involving impaired bar patrons. These incidents can lead to serious physical injury or even death.
At Petker Campbell Postnikoff in Waterloo, we regularly represent clients and family members of those who have been injured or killed by overserved or intoxicated bar patrons, or by bouncers using excessive force. We help our clients recover money from all liable parties, including the intoxicated individual, bar or tavern employees and the establishment itself. We work hard to achieve the appropriate damages award for our injured clients and their families to help them move on afterwards.
