Businesses that serve alcohol can be held liable in car accidents

Without a doubt, drunk driving accidents are preventable. However, even though drinking and driving is considered to be a choice, establishments that continue to serve alcohol to customers who appear "visibly intoxicated" might bear some of the responsibility under New Jersey's dram shop liability laws if patrons are involved in car accidents. For example, a Jersey Shore bar recently pleaded no contest regarding a state enforcement action and will have to pay $500,000 in fines and suffer a 30-day suspension for serving alcoholic beverages to a patron who left the bar and was involved in a collision. Separately, the bar could face claims for financial liability in any civil action that may be filed as a result of that accident.

Emergency vehicles become involved in car accidents too

Emergency responders put their lives on the line every day to help the people in the New Jersey communities where they live. Seeing emergency vehicles such as ambulances and fire trucks at the scenes of car accidents is normal, and the injured are grateful to them for their help. Every so often, however, emergency personnel never arrive at a scene to which they are called because they were involved in an accident along the way.

New Jersey car accidents caused by texting
