James Pagliuca of Gill & Chamas recovered $975,000 for a 19 year-old woman who sustained multiple fractures in an automobile accident in July of 2016. Mr. Pagliuca claimed that the driver was served alcohol at the defendant’s bar in Keyport, NJ despite the fact that he was visibly intoxicated.
Video surveillance showed that the driver was at the bar (10) minutes before he rolled his pick-up truck on Route 35 in Morgan, NJ. The evidence produced showed that the driver of the pick-up truck had a BAC of .19, which is twice the legal limit. The bar had a one million dollar insurance policy.
