WERE YOU ATTACKED IN A BAR?
Anytime drinking is involved, the chance of a physical altercation occurring increases. The Chicagoland area has countless bars where intoxicated patrons start fights and even brawls. Illinois law protects citizens involved in such incidents, and holds accountable the establishments that sell and profit from the sales of alcohol under the Illinois Dram Shop Act. Your actions following an attack are extremely important-- filing an incident report with the establishment, filing a police report , and documenting your injuries. Rely on our experience and expertise to help navigate the steps to a successful recovery following a bar fight.
Section 6-21 of the Liquor Control Act of 1934 (the Dramshop Act) (235 ILCS 5/6-21 (2000)) creates a cause of action against owners of businesses that sell liquor, and also against lessors or owners of the premises on which the liquor is sold, for physical injury to a person, for injury to tangible property, or for injury to means of support or loss of society, but not both, caused by an intoxicated person.
