Greenville Dram Shop and Alcohol Liability Lawyer
Restaurants, bars, nightclubs, and other establishments have a legal responsibility not to serve alcohol to patrons who may be intoxicated. South Carolina has dram shop and/or social host liability laws that allow victims of a drunk driving accident to bring a claim against the bar or restaurant for recovery of damage. New Law in South Carolina mandates that every bar or restaurant carry at least $1 Million in liability insurance to cover these type of claims. South Carolina does not want innocent people who have been bit by a drunk driver to suffer more than they have to by only being able to recover money from the driver. The law allows us to go after the source if the drunk driver was over-served.
**However you must move quickly and act now. Much of the evidence in these cases can disappear after 60 or even 30 days. We go after surveillance video, credit card receipts, witness statements, etc. The things can be deleted, disappear or memories fade. Act sooner rather than later.
