YOU CAN BE SUED
Even though some states have prohibited third-party lawsuits claiming that they were overserved, you still have to deal with the cost of defending yourself and the legal fees alone can be detrimental to your business. In some cases, you will have to immediately halt operations or deal with a PR situation, depending on the severity.
LIQUOR LIABILITY CAN HELP
