host liability

Precedent setting BC case finds pub 25% liable for a drunk driving accident that left a pedestrian brain injured. One of our founding partners Joe Battista, QC sums up the significance of the decision in a recent CBC article.

“In BC, you owe a duty to patrons not to over serve. If you do, you owe them a duty of care,” Battista explained. “After the duty of care arose, they needed to ensure [Rockwell] didn’t harm himself and they didn’t follow their own rules [to do so.]”
