Enjoying a night out with friends can be a great time, but it can also lead to serious consequences. In 2010, more than 10,000 people died as a result of a drunk driving accident, that’s one every 51 minutes.
When you’re out with friends it can be difficult to keep track of how many you’ve had, so when you’re visibly intoxicated and still being served drinks by a bar, restaurant or other establishment, the Supreme Court of New Jersey has ruled they may be liable for damages caused by your subsequent actions. Holding these places of business accountable for negligence is known as dram shop liability.
