GREENVILLE BAR LIABILITY LAWYER

After a drunk driving accident, a critical question is: Where did the inebriated driver obtain his or her liquor? A DUI citation is an indication that drunk driving may have contributed to the accident. This factor may be relevant in determining negligence and liability. Accident reconstruction should seek to discover all pertinent facts, including whether a driver was impaired.

If a bar or restaurant continued to serve a customer alcoholic beverages despite the fact that the person appeared intoxicated, that establishment may be held accountable. Therefore, a detailed investigation of the cause of a crash should include a review of the drunk driver’s comings and goings before the accident.

South Carolina’s Alcohol Beverage Control Act Includes Dram Shop Scenarios

South Carolina’s alcohol beverage control act clarifies that a “person or establishment licensed to sell alcoholic liquors or liquor by the drink … may not sell these beverages to persons in an intoxicated condition.” A dram shop lawsuit targets a liable bar or restaurant, seeking compensation for injuries or fatalities resulting from serving beer, wine or whiskey to an obviously drunk customer who subsequently caused a motor vehicle accident.

To determine whether a drunk driver who caused you injury or caused death to your family member was intoxicated, investigators from Ryan Montgomery, Attorney at Law, LLC, may review video footage or interview witnesses. We aim to explore all aspects of an accident while memories are fresh and before videotaped evidence is taped over. This is just one example of the detailed, thorough and comprehensive approach that we take as we advocate on behalf of our injured clients.
