Dram Shop – What Does That Even Mean?
The term “dram shop” is legalese for “alcohol provider.” The Texas Dram Shop Act is a law created by the Texas legislature which provides rules that bars must follow and which holds bars civilly liable for injuries and fatalities caused when they break the rules.
Understanding The Basics of Dram Shop Cases

These lawsuits are filed on the basis that the alcohol provider violated specific laws that they agreed to abide by when they obtained their license to sell alcohol. Common scenarios that precipitate lawsuits include:
When such an incident occurs as a consequence of a bar violating the law, the aggrieved party can file a lawsuit against the bar for their involvement.
