What Damages May Be Sought in Dram Shop Cases?

On Monday we covered dram shop liability in Arkansas and when an alcohol vendor may be held responsible for injuries or damages inflicted by an intoxicated person who was over-served. But what damages can a person seek in dram shop liability cases?

  • medical bills, including cost for emergency care, hospitalization, or rehabilitation
  • lost wages while the injured person recovers from his or her injuries
  • the value of wages and benefits that would reasonably have been earned if the injured person had not been totally disabled by his or her injuries
  • the value of damaged or destroyed property
  • compensation for household services and childcare the injured person can no longer provide, and
  • general damages such as pain and suffering.
