Restaurant and bar liability
Restaurant and bar liability is often identified as commercial host liability and involves holding commercial business owners liable for negligent conduct that occurs within their establishment. Toronto has over 8,000 bars, restaurants, and caterers. When a business sells alcohol or charges admission fees, it owes a duty to its customers and the surrounding community. An obligation is owed to protect its customers and when an accident happens, there may be liability.
By law, restaurants and bars must ensure that alcohol is not over-served. That means if you were over-served and as a result, injured yourself or someone else, the restaurant or bar may be liable to both you and anyone you injured. These businesses also have an obligation to keep people and their premises secure from acts of aggression and violence.
Establishments who use excessive or unreasonable force to handle or eject patrons can be held liable for any injuries sustained. If you or someone you know has been involved in a motor vehicle accident with a drunk driver who was over-served at a restaurant or bar, or you have suffered injuries or assaults while at a restaurant or bar, contact Longo Lawyers for a free consultation.
