Under Idaho's dram shop laws, a bar, liquor store, restaurant or other establishment that sells alcohol cannot serve alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person. Therefore, if a person was already drunk, ordered a beer at a bar and was served and then injured someone in an accident, the bar can also be held liable for damages.

Don't delay, Idaho law has a very strict 180 rule that requires you put the server on notice within six months of the injury claim.
