If you have been injured in a motor vehicle accident involving a drunk driver, or in any type of accident where the responsible party was under the influence of alcohol at the time, you may have a claim for damages against the bar, tavern or liquor store that sold or served the alcohol. Under the laws of Pennsylvania and New Jersey, if a bartender, waiter or waitress has reason to believe a person is drunk, he or she can be liable for serving additional alcohol if that person causes injury to another. There can also be a liability if the amount of alcohol served would be enough to cause inebriation. Additionally, a liquor store may be liable for injuries as a result of the irresponsible sale of alcohol.
