Under Oregon's Dram Shop law, a bartender, waiter or store clerk serving or selling alcohol, to anyone who appears to be visibly impaired, can be held liable for those damages later caused by the impaired individual. Impairment does not only have to be from alcohol, prescription, over-the-counter and illegal drugs in a person's system may also subject them to the Dram Shop laws.

The Rayburn Law Office represented a woman injured in a head-on collision caused when a drunk driver crossed the center line of a highway causing severe injuries to our client. The drunk driver had only minimal insurance limits. We were able to uncover information that the drunk driver was over served alcohol by a tavern. With this information, we were able to obtain a policy limits settlement from the drunk drivers insurance and a policy limit recovery under a "dram shop" claim against the tavern. This provided a recovery to our client that covered our clients medical, wage loss and emotional distress damages.
