The family of an Anchorage, Alaska woman who was killed in a traffic collision has filed a lawsuit against the bar where authorities say the driver charged in the death acknowledged drinking heavily before the crash.
The bar owners claim they “…have safety procedures in place that the driver chose not to avail himself of, including a taxi we would have provided and, as I understand it, a military walk through that night that would have provided him a ride back to (base) as well.
There are plenty of vendors who offer liquor sales training, including online training. Same idea like with an online traffic school. You can even have a class online for $40 http://www.tipsalcohol.com/tips-off-premise.html
You can also record the video lesson and train newly hired employees using that video.
The participation in the TIPS program is one of the main requirements with Liquor Liability Insurance. This inexpensive liability add-on coverage, provided the bar owner’s had it prior to the above listed accident, will provide the defendants the defense (pay for legal representation) and, should the court decide that the bar owners are at fault, pay claim restitution.
We highly recommend Liquor Liability Insurance coverage as part of our general liability / business owner’s package to every owner and operator of establishments selling or serving alcoholic beverages.
