Philadelphia Wrongful Death Lawyers: $7 Million Awarded in Dram Shop Settlement Outside Philadelphia Bar

In June of 2015, the estate of Kevin Kless was awarded $7 million after Kless was attacked and beaten to death by three assailants in Old City. Defendants Lucy’s Hat Shop and G Lounge paid out their policy limits after they were found liable for serving two of the assailants, who were minors.

Dram Shop laws allow victims and their families to hold establishments liable for serving alcohol to individuals who later commit alcohol-related crimes. According to Pennsylvania Dram Shop laws, an establishment can be liable for the entire verdict even if it is only 1% liable on damages.
