Liquor Server Liability
Those who serve liquor, either as licensed vendors or private individuals, owe certain duties to those they serve and to those who may be foreseeably injured due to the intoxication of those they serve. For example, Massachusetts statutes prohibit the service of alcohol to minors or those who are already intoxicated. Unfortunately, all too often, bars, restaurants, clubs, colleges, universities, and private homeowners fail to meet their obligations in connection with the furnishing of alcohol with catastrophic results.
