Wisconsin Dram Shop Laws

Any venue in Wisconsin that provides a minor with alcohol is potentially liable for any damages the minor causes as a result of their inebriation. Other stipulations of the law are:

  • The alcohol must have been a significant factor in the accident for the venue to be liable
  • The establishment must have clear knowledge that they were serving alcohol to a patron under the age of 21
  • If the patron was over 21, the venue has no legal obligation for any damages that patron caused

If you have any questions about Wisconsin’s dram shop laws and whether or not they apply to your accident, we may be of assistance.
