$850,000 Settlement in Dram Shop Case

Clawson Fargnoli recently settled a dram shop case for a total of $850,000. Our clients were hit head by a drunk driver and suffered various injuries. We sued the drunk driver and used that lawsuit as a vehicle for unilateral discovery against the bar. We then settled the claims against the drunk driver on a covenant not to execute and collected all the available auto insurance coverage. We then sent a settlement demand to the bar, who requested a pre-suit mediation, where they paid out a significant portion of the available coverage. The total recovery was approximately ten times the medical expenses. Think of Clawson Fargnoli for life altering personal injury and death cases across the state, including dram shop cases.
