Morristown & Newton Liquor / Dram Shop Liability Lawyer
It is a far too common occurrence in our culture. Somebody goes to a bar or to a party for a few drinks. A few becomes too many, and the bartender or the party host continues to serve an obviously inebriated person. That person then gets behind the wheel of a car or engages in some other act that causes serious injury to you or someone you love. You may be able to seek compensation from the bar, the bartender or the social host. We can help.
At the Howard D. Popper, P.C., we offer more than a quarter-century of experience to accident victims across New Jersey, including men and women injured by intoxicated or inebriated people. In a recent case, attorney Popper won a $2 million judgment against a tavern that had served more than 10 drinks to a patron, who injured a third-party in a motor vehicle accident after leaving the bar.
We take a results-oriented approach, always looking to maximize your financial recovery. Because of our record of success in personal injury cases, attorney Popper has been selected as a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum*, an elite group representing less than one percent of all attorneys nationwide (those who have secured settlements or judgments in excess of $1 million).
When you retain our services to protect your interests after a workplace accident, you will work directly with attorney Popper throughout the process, never with a paralegal or an inexperienced associate. We always take an aggressive approach, using our considerable knowledge, skill, experience and resources to work toward the outcome you seek. To see examples of the verdicts and settlements we have obtained for other clients, see our Results page.
Our Representation in Liquor Liability Cases
We provide full-service legal counsel to people who have been hurt when a bar or party host served too much alcohol to a patron or guest. We handle cases involving:
- Dram shop liability, in which a business establishment, such as a bar or restaurant, fails to put appropriate measures in place to prevent customers from becoming intoxicated, or continues to serve patrons who are either visibly inebriated or whom the bar should know have consumed too much alcohol
- Social host liability, in which a person holding a private party fails to monitor the amount of alcohol consumed by individual guests, allows visibly intoxicated guests to consume more alcohol or to get behind the wheel of a car, or serves quantities of alcohol that would reasonably lead to intoxication
We focus our practice on serious and catastrophic injury claims, such as brain injury, spinal cord injury, paralysis, broken bones, burns, and amputation or loss of limb. We also handle wrongful death claims.
