Financial Compensation For Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents

Attorney contributor, Brian Kent, helps those in New Jersey who have been hit by drunk drivers. recover the financial compensation they deserve. Brian has offered his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families:

Victims can sue the drunk driver who injured them directly in a personal injury lawsuit, but sometimes there is another way to receive financial compensation. New Jersey and other states have dram shop laws. These third-party liability laws, depending on the case, make it possible to file a lawsuit against alcohol vendors for serving a drunk driver prior to a crash.

According to New Jersey’s dram shop law, an alcohol vendor or a private social host can be sued if:

  • alcohol was sold to a minor under 21, or
  • they served alcohol to someone they knew was intoxicated at the time, or
  • the intoxication was a foreseeable cause of injuries suffered.
