Legal Options For Victims of Drunk Driving Crashes in New Jersey

Attorney contributor Brian Kent helps victims injured by drunk drivers receive the financial compensation they deserve. Mr. Kent has offered his knowledge about the legal options available to these victims and their families in the state of New Jersey.

In every state, victims of drunk driving crashes may have a case for a personal injury lawsuit against the drunk driver. However, this is not the only legal option for those who have been injured or killed by a drunk driver. In most states, including New Jersey, there are “dram shop” laws which let these victims file a lawsuit against the alcohol vendor who served the driver prior to the crash.

New Jersey’s dram shop law states that an alcohol vendor may be held liable for a drunk driving crash if that vendor served alcohol to a customer who was:

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

If a licensed establishment violates either of these laws and that customer ends up causing an accident that injures someone else, the victim may have grounds for a dram shop lawsuit against the vendor.

If you or a loved one has been injured by a drunk driver in New Jersey, you can learn more about your legal options by speaking with an experienced personal injury lawyer.
