Can I Sue For Being Hit By A Drunk Driver?

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:

People who have been injured or family members of people who have been killed in drunk driving accidents may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against the driver.

There also may be a possibility for these victims to file a lawsuit against the alcohol vendor who served the driver prior to the crash. These are known as dram shop claims.

New Jersey and severy other states have dram shop laws that allow third-party vendors to be held liable for serving someone alcohol before a crash. In the state of New Jersey, 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.
