Not only is this action about the over-service of alcohol to a person, but also an employer's perceived negligence in failing to combat service to their employees.
Fort Worth, Texas (PRWEB) November 08, 2011
In a lawsuit (Cause No. 096-255209-11) filed in the 96th Judicial District Court of Tarrant County, Texas, the drunk driving accident attorneys of Grossman Law Offices filed suit against Fat Daddy's Sports & Spirits Cafe, for their alleged negligence in the death of employee Dalton Hall. According to the suit, while in the normal course of employment, Hall was allegedly "serve(d) alcohol... after he was obviously intoxicated to the extent that he presented a clear danger to himself and others."
The suit alleges that the Defendants "failed to provide Dalton Hall with a safe place of work," through the service of alcohol to Hall "while in an intoxicated state" and furthermore, failed "to implement procedures and rules necessary to ensure that employees did not drink to the point of intoxication."
As a result of the Defendants alleged "failing to ensure that Dalton Hall left the Defendants' premises in a safe manner," Hall suffered life-threatening injuries from a motorcycle crash, resulting in his death.
Fort Worth wrongful death attorney Keith Purdue stated about the suit, "Not only is this action about the over-service of alcohol to a person, but also an employer's perceived negligence in failing to combat service to their employees." Attorney Purdue continues, "Normally the first strategy for defenses in a dram shop suit is safe harbor, a claim that the Defendants acted properly in every regard to alcohol service, including the subsequent denial thereof. However, the allegations of service while on-the-clock and the autopsy placing Hall's blood alcohol level at two times the legal limit appear to fly in the face of the safe harbor assertion."
