New Jersey Dram Shop and Social Host Liability Attorneys
Under New Jersey’s dram shop laws, restaurants, bars and liquor stores can be held financially liable for serving visibly intoxicated patrons who injure or kill someone in a car accident. Additionally, under New Jersey’s social host law, people who host a private party in their home can also be held liable for serving intoxicated guests who later cause accidents.
The Brick dram shop liability attorneys of LePore & Luizzi recover financial damages for clients who have been injured or have lost a family member in a drunk driving accident. We can recover sales receipts, credit card statements, and eyewitness testimony to create a timeline of when drinks were ordered, how many, and over what period of time. We expose negligence on the part of bars, restaurants, liquor stores, and sponsors of private parties in over-serving people who later cause injuries in car accidents.
If you have been seriously injured or have had a family member killed due to a drunk driver, contact the dram shop attorneys at the law office of LePore & Luizzi today and schedule a free consultation to discuss your case.
Legal Help for Drunk Driver Victims
While the police may tell you that the driver who hit you or killed your family member was drunk, they won’t necessarily tell you if a bar tender or restaurant over-served them. New Jersey’s dram shop laws apply to civil cases, not criminal cases. As such, the police will not necessarily investigate whether or not a drunk driver was negligently over-served by a bar or at a private party.
At LePore & Luizzi, our lawyers have the resources to investigate the whereabouts of a drunk driver and their actions leading up to an accident. We know what evidence to look for and how to find it.
