Legal Recourse For Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents

Attorney contributor, Brian Kent, represents those in New Jersey who have been hit by drunk drivers. Below Brian has offered his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

Injuries endured by a drunk driving crash can cause serious financial and personal repercussions. Fortunately, those injured by drunk drivers can usually receive financial compensation for their troubles.

One can sue the drunk driver directly in a personal injury lawsuit, but sometimes there is another form of financial compensation available. New Jersey and many other states have dram shop laws, which depending on the circumstances allow alcohol vendors to be held liable for serving a drunk driver before 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.
