Can I File a Lawsuit For Injuries Caused by a Drunk Driver in New Hampshire?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney represents people who have been injured in crashes caused by drunk drivers. Brian has offered to give The Legal Herald some of his thoughts on filing a drunk driving injury lawsuit in New Hampshire:
When someone drinks and gets behind the wheel of a vehicle, the chances of a crash skyrocket. Thousands of people are injured in crashes caused by drunk drivers each year. These victims deserve financial support for their medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other difficulties they face.
People who have been injured by drunk drivers may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against the driver who injured them. Additionally, New Hampshire and many other states have dram shop laws that allow alcohol vendors to be sued for negligently serving a customer who went on to cause injuries to others due to being intoxicated. These are called dram shop law suits.
According to New Hampshire dram shop law, an alcohol vendor can be sued for injuries caused by a customer if the vendor knew or should have known that the customer was already intoxicated when they were served. A dram shop lawsuit can also be filed if the customer was underage.
