$600,000.00 Settlement Against Bar Serving Liquor to Intoxicated Patron and Automobile Driver

Harrison J. Gordon recently settled a case against a Tavern for serving liquor to visibly intoxicated patrons. Our client and his friends were patrons at a local tavern and left visibly intoxicated. The driver lost control of the vehicle and struck a tree which immediately killed the driver and the front seat passenger. Our client, who was a back seat passenger sustained a skull fracture and subdural hematoma – Plaintiff was kept in medically-induced coma for 20 days and suffered severe cognitive injuries. This case was previously settled with the driver’s insurance company for $100,000.00* but, Harrison Gordon contended that the defendant tavern served the driver when he was visibly intoxicated and the plaintiff brought a dram shop action against the bar which resulted in the $500,000.00 additional settlement.*
