It was shortly after 2 a.m. on Aug. 23, 2015, when Daulton Holly, 21, of Troy, Tenn., was found in the 6400 block of Raccoon River Drive having been hit by a car. . Police said Holly had been struck by a car. Mr. Holly was in Des Moines to save money for his upcoming wedding. He was employed by Racking Installation Co. in Memphis, Tennessee.

Here is the most important question: What is the name of the bar/tavern in Van Meter where the driver got drunk?

The Holly Estate can now pursue a wrongful death suit against the man who was arrested and file a claim with the driver and car owners’ insurance companies. The estate may also have a claim against the Van Meter bar although deadlines are running to serve the proper notices. If the notice is not filed the dram shop claim will be barred. Those in Tennessee need to understand the gravity of the notice requirement and the need to move forward to serve it and any other bars, such as Beach Girls.

We handle wrongful death and dram shop suits, and if we can assist you please call. 515-222-1110, and ask for Attorney Lombardi.
