Monmouth County Dram Shop Law AttorneyIt is against the law for individuals to drive if their BACs are more than .08. However, that does not stop individuals from getting drunk and then choosing to get behind the wheel. When those individuals cause car crashes that injure innocent victims, the drunk drivers can be held liable. In addition, under New Jersey’s dram shop laws, if a commercial establishment — such as a bar, liquor store or restaurant — served alcohol to the individual when he or she was visibly intoxicated, that establishment could also be held liable. At Hobbie, Corrigan & DeCarlo, P.C., we represent individuals in Monmouth County and throughout New Jersey who suffered injuries because of car crashes caused by drunk drivers.
