Compensation For Alcohol-Related Injuries

In New Jersey, restaurants, bars, liquor stores and social hosts can be held liable for the accidents and injuries caused by their intoxicated patrons.

  • Dram shop laws — If a bar, restaurant or liquor store served or sold alcohol to an intoxicated patron, that establishment can be held liable for the injuries and damage caused by that drunken person.
  • Social host liability — Social hosts, or individuals hosting parties or other gatherings in their homes, can be held responsible for the injuries their guests cause. In order to be held liable, a social host must have provided alcoholic beverages to a visibly intoxicated guest.

At Silvi, Fedele & Honschke, we don't just go after the drunk individual, we hold all responsible parties liable. Our lawyers thoroughly investigate the circumstances surrounding the accident. If a bar, restaurant or liquor store sold alcohol to an intoxicated patron, or a social host overserved his or her guest, we will hold him or her liable for the resulting injuries. By casting a wide net, we identify all potentially liable parties and maximize our clients' compensation.

Social host and Dram shop liability laws cover injures caused by drunk driving accidents, assaults, and other accidents or injuries performed by intoxicated people.
