Leveraging Robson Forensic for your dram shop investigations not only provides you with access to the nation’s leading experts in liquor liability, but also a host of experts in complementary disciplines such as toxicology, police practices & procedures, premises security, and restaurant operations.

Dram Shop & Liquor Liability

In 2008 Robson Forensic set out to establish a team of experts who specialize in investigations involving alcohol and drugs of abuse. While our original scope was narrow, focusing mainly on issues of dram shop and liquor liability, we expanded the group over time to more closely align with the needs of our clients. Since its inception, the Alcohol and Drugs of Abuse practice group has investigated over 300 incidents and now includes experts in toxicology, dram shop, premises security, police practices, and restaurant operations – all of whom are nationally-recognized leaders in their fields.

It has been our experience that the execution or defense of a dram shop case often requires analysis of causation (e.g., toxicology) as well as standard of care (e.g., manager/server training, best practices, premises security). The construct of the Alcohol and Drugs of Abuse practice group is aimed at providing our clients with the full range of expertise required towards the resolution of dram shop matters.

The Alcohol and Drugs of Abuse Practice Includes:

  • Toxicology
  • Dram Shop/Liquor Liability
  • Police Practices & Procedures
  • Premises Security
  • Restaurant Operations

Comprehensive Investigations

Cases involving alcohol or drugs of abuse often involve traumatic injuries related to vehicular crashes, assaults, or premises safety. When advantageous to our clients, Robson Forensic can also involve experts in crash reconstruction, highway engineering, biomechanical engineering, human factors, or premises safety; effectively providing a complete forensic solution for dram shop cases.
