However, under dram shop liability laws in the state of Wisconsin, an injured victim may also be able to take legal action against the dram shop, or the establishment such as a bar or restaurant, that served alcohol to the intoxicated driver. If an inebriated driver leaves a dram shop and proceeds to cause an accident, injured victims may be able to hold the establishment partially at fault.
