Financial Compensation For Victims Of Drunk Driving Accidents

Attorney contributor Brian Kent 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 have the option to file a personal injury lawsuit against the driver. These victims may have additional legal options available to them under certain circumstances.

In some states, including New Jersey, dram shop laws exist which allow victims of drunk driving accidents to sue the alcohol vendor who provided the driver alcohol prior to 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.
