What Are Pennsylvania’s Dram Shop Laws?
Under state law, establishments that overserve intoxicated patrons
are liable for damages if those patrons cause drunk driving crash
injuries or deaths. Pennsylvania’s dram shop law applies to businesses and private events. State law also holds social hosts liable for drunk driving damages caused by providing minors alcohol.
