Financial Compensation For People Injured in DWI Crashes in New Jersey

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville recovers financial compensation for people who have been injured in crashes with drunk drivers. Laurence has offered to share some info on the types of lawsuits available to DWI crash victims in New Jersey:

If you’ve recently been injured in a crash caused by a drunk driver, you may be wondering about your legal rights and how you’ll deal with the financial and personal difficulties you face. Fortunately, DWI crash victims often have grounds for one or more types of lawsuits, which can help provide financial support.

A personal injury lawsuit can be filed against a drunk driver for injuries they’ve caused. Additionally, New Jersey and most other states have dram shop laws that allow alcohol vendors to be held liable for injuries caused by customers, depending on the circumstances.

In New Jersey, a dram shop lawsuit can be filed against an alcohol vendor for injuries caused by a customer if the customer was either under 21 years old or visibly intoxicated when the vendor served him or her alcohol.
