Financial Compensation For Victims Of Drunk Driving Accidents

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea helps victims injured by 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:

In all 50 states, victims injured by drunk drivers or family members of victims killed by drunk drivers may be able to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. However, there may be another legal option available to these victims.

In many states, including New Jersey, there are dram shop laws that may allow drunk driving crash victims to sue the alcohol vendor who sold the driver alcohol before the crash.

In New Jersey, the dram shop law says that an alcohol vendor may be held liable for injuries caused by a customer if they sell alcohol:

  • to a minor under 21 years old, or
  • to a customer who was noticeably overly intoxicated and the intoxication was a foreseeable cause of the victim’s injuries or death.
