LIABILITIES IN INTOXICATION ACCIDENTS

Drunk and impaired drivers can be held liable for any injuries and deaths they cause. In cases where a bar, restaurant, liquor store or party host serves alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person, who later causes an injury or fatal accident, that person or establishment can also be held liable under New Jersey's dram shop law. Here, it's important to thoroughly reconstruct the events that happened prior to a drunk driving accident in order to establish a timeline of when a drunk driver started drinking, how much he or she likely had, and the time frame involved. Reviewing bar tabs, credit card purchases, security camera footage (if available) and eyewitness testimony can shed considerable light on whether or not a drunk driver was visibly intoxicated when he or she was served alcohol.
