It is common knowledge that when motorists drink and drive, they can be arrested and held accountable for their actions.
But did you know this can be true for bars and restaurants as well? Massachusetts dram shop liability laws permit injured people to sue for damages from any licensed alcohol seller that knowingly sold alcohol to an intoxicated person who later caused injuries or property damage.
