The restaurant in question reportedly served 86 shots to 5 customers, which is an average of 17 shots for each person. This excess of alcohol caused the patrons to pass out and one was reportedly unconscious in a pool of their own vomit. The panel asks if the bartender and or the bar could be held accountable if something were to happen to the patrons or someone else.
Attorney Afi Patterson says "absolutely" the bar and the bartender could be held liable is they overserve an obviously intoxicated person telling The Doctors if an overserved person leaves an establishment and causes harm to themselves or others, the bar or restaurant could be held liable.
Afi says signs of being "obviously intoxicated" could include bloodshot eyes, slurred speech, and behavior exhibited by the patrons, like passing out and vomiting. She also stresses this law can also be applied to social events like weddings, gatherings, and parties.
The Doctors remind our viewers to drink responsibly and in moderation and never get behind the wheel after drinking. They also stress that personal responsibility is important when it comes to drinking and determining how much to drink and when to stop.
