Financial Compensation For Victims of Drunk Driving Accidents in New Jersey

Attorney contributor Brian Kent helps victims of drunk drivers receive the financial compensation they need and deserve. Here is Brian with some thoughts on the legal rights of these victims in New Jersey:

All 50 states allow victims of drunk driving accidents to sue the driver that injured them in a personal injury lawsuit. However, in many states like New Jersey, these victims may be able to file a dram shop lawsuit against the alcohol vendor who provided the driver alcohol prior to the crash.

New Jersey’s dram shop laws state that an alcohol vendor can be held liable for injuries caused by a customer if:

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