If you plan to celebrate the New Year this week by going out to a party or attending a casino event, make sure you avoid drunk driving.
Remember, an estimated 125 drunk driving traffic fatalities occur in New Jersey each year, and drivers who injure or kill others can be held liable. Additionally, people or venues who overserve alcohol can be held liable for any car accidents that may occur.
Our attorneys have been heavily involved in litigation surrounding casino negligence and venues that overserve alcohol.
It is estimated by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that close to 25 percent of all motor vehicle fatalities in New Jersey occur in alcohol-related vehicle accidents. Atlantic City, a known tourist destination, has issues with intoxicated drivers.
If a victim can prove that another driver was served alcohol by a bar or casino when he or she was clearly intoxicated, then he or she may be able to hold both parties liable.
Can I File a Lawsuit Following a Drunk Driving Accident?
If your loved one has experienced personal injuries or has been killed in a drunk driving accident, contact our law firm today. We can investigate his or her case and determine if a driver’s carelessness and/or the overserving of alcohol by a casino played a role in the crash.
There are no excuses for a venue or casino to overserve guests who are already intoxicated. Often, this is done to generate additional profits, without the safety of the public taken into consideration. Take legal action today.
