Filing a Lawsuit After Getting Hit By a Drunk Driver

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents people who have been injured by drunk drivers. Below Mr. Kent shares some thoughts on the legal rights of these victims and families.

When a drunk driver causes a crash with injuries or deaths, it’s necessary that those injured are aware of the legal options available to them.

In many cases, drunk drivers can be sued for these damages directly. Additionally, New Jersey and many other states have dram shop laws, which allow alcohol vendors or social hosts to be sued under certain conditions.

Under the New Jersey dram shop law, someone injured by a drunk driver, or a family member of someone who was killed by a drunk driver can sue an alcohol vendor if:

  • alcohol was sold to a minor under 21, or
  • they sell alcohol to a customer who was obviously overly intoxicated, and
  • the intoxication was a foreseeable cause of injuries suffered.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed by a drunk driver in New Jersey, you can learn more about your legal options in a free consultation with one of our experienced drunk driving crash victim lawyers.
