Legal Options For People Injured by Drunk Drivers in New Jersey

Brian Kent is a hit by drunk driver attorney who represents people who have been injured by drunk drivers and the families of those killed in fatal drunk driving crashes. Here is some general information regarding the legal options available to these victims and their families in New Jersey:

When a drunk driver causes a crash and other people are injured, those injured may have grounds for a lawsuit. In all 50 states, these injury victims may have a case for a personal injury lawsuit against the drunk driver. But in New Jersey and most other states, there are also “dram shop” laws which, under certain conditions, allow these victims to file a lawsuit against an alcohol vendor who served the driver before the crash.

According to New Jersey’s dram shop law, anyone who has been injured by an intoxicated individual may have grounds for a lawsuit against an alcohol vendor if that vendor served alcohol to someone who was either:

  • visibly intoxicated when the alcohol was served, or
  • under 21 years of age

In either of these scenarios, people who have been injured in alcohol-related incidents may have grounds for a dram shop lawsuit against the vendor who served the alcohol.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed after being hit by a drunk driver in New Jersey, you can learn more about your legal options by discussing your case with an experienced drunk driving injury attorney in a free consultation.
