Filing a Lawsuit After Being Injured by a Drunk Driver in New Jersey

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents people who have been injured by drunk drivers and the families of fatal drunk driving crash victims, helping them find justice and financial compensation in civil lawsuits. Here is some info from Brian on filing a drunk driving injury lawsuit in New Jersey:

New Jersey is one of several states that allow victims of drunk drivers to seek financial compensation in two ways. First, they may file a personal injury lawsuit against the drunk driver who injured them. Additionally, under certain conditions, people may file a drunk driving lawsuit against alcohol vendors who served the drunk driver prior to the crash.

This second type of lawsuit is known as a “dram shop” claim. In order to file a lawsuit against an alcohol vendor for a drunk driving crash in New Jersey, you must establish one of two things:

  • The vendor served someone who was “visibly intoxicated”, or
  • the vendor knew or reasonably should have known that the person being served was under 21 years old.

Determining the best course of legal action will usually require assistance from an experienced drunk driving crash victims lawyer, who can help you determine if you qualify for a personal injury lawsuit, dram shop claim, or both. If you or a loved one has recently been hit by a drunk driver, you can learn more about your legal options in a free consultation.
