Can I Sue For Being Injured 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:

It is important for victims injured by drunk drivers to understand their legal options in that state. Every state allows these victims and family members of victims killed by drunk drivers to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver.

Additionally, in many states like New Jersey, victims injured by drunk drivers may be able to sue the alcohol vendor who provided the driver alcohol prior to the crash. This is known as a dram shop lawsuit.

New Jersey’s dram shop laws state that 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 to a customer who was visibly overly intoxicated and the intoxication was a foreseeable cause of the victim’s injuries.
