If you are injured by an impaired or drunk driver, you may not only have a claim against that driver, but against the bar or restaurant or other type of liquor store that caused that driver to be impaired. In Illinois, it’s called the Dram Shop Act, and the Dram Shop Act provides that somebody who supplies alcohol to an impaired person, and that impaired person then injures a third party – an innocent third party – the injured victim may recover damages against the licensed store, bar, restaurant that supplied the alcohol to the impaired driver.
