Trial and Results

Trial: Dram Shop Claim Defended
Plaintiff v. National Restaurant Chain

Attorneys for the Defendants:
Dale R. Hightower
Christopher S. Stratton

Plaintiff was rear ended on his motorcycle while at a red light.  The offending driver was a highly intoxicated woman that had allegedly become drunk at our client’s restaurant.  The Plaintiff filed a Dram Shop claim against our client.  He alleged that the accident necessitated surgeries to his back, knee and wrist, causing nearly $250,000 in medical bills.

Hightower, Stratton, Novigrod & Kantor represented the restaurant and filed a Motion for Summary Judgment based on Florida’s Dram Shop Act. We were able to prove that our client did not know the drunk driver as a habitual drunk and therefore Florida’s dram shop act did not apply to our client.

RESULT: Summary judgment granted!  Case dismissed.
