Legal Recourse For DUI Accident Victims in New Jersey

Guy D'Andrea is an experienced DUI accident victims lawyer who helps these victims and their families get the financial compensation they deserve. We’ve asked him to add some thoughts on the legal options available to DUI victims in New Jersey:

In addition to having the right to file a personal injury lawsuit directly against the drunk driver, DUI accident victims in New Jersey may have the right to file a lawsuit against an alcohol vendor who provided alcohol to the drunk driver before the crash. This type of liability is covered under what’s known as “dram shop” laws.

According to New Jersey’s dram shop law, those who have been hit by a drunk driver (and the families of those killed by them) may have grounds for a dram shop lawsuit against an alcohol vendor if the vendor served alcohol under either of the following circumstances:

  • the intoxicated individual was already “visibly intoxicated” when served, or
  • the vendor knew or reasonably should have known that the person they were serving was under 21 years of age.

If you or a loved one was injured or killed after being hit by a drunk driver, you can learn more about your legal options by speaking with an experienced DUI victims lawyer.
