DRAM Shop Liability in South Carolina

Greenville, SC Personal Injury Lawyer Holding Social Hosts Responsible

Sadly, while tragic car accidents and deaths caused by drunk drivers are easily preventable, they continue to occur and often cause deep pain and devastation to the families involved. In the state of South Carolina, it is illegal to knowingly serve alcohol to a man or woman who is already intoxicated or to a minor.

DRAM shop acts are statutes in place to hold the intoxicated person as well as the business person or establishment who provided the alcohol legally responsible for the damage, injuries, and death that occurred.

For help in filing a DRAM shop liability claim, contact Jordan Law Center located in Greenville (864) 642-0367 today!

Recovering Compensation from Dram Shop Cases

When you’ve been injured due to illegal intoxication, the bar, pub, or tavern should be held accountable. Filing a claim may also act as a warning and prevent future incidents from happening.

Our personal injury lawyer fights for compensation after a DRAM shop case to cover the victim's:

  • Hospital, ambulance, and other medical bills
  • Lost wages
  • Pain and suffering
  • Property damage
  • Funeral costs
  • Other associated costs or damages

Proving Dram Shop Liability

Prosecuting alcohol vendors or social hosts under dram shop laws can be complicated and challenging. It is common for establishments to claim that an individual was not visibly intoxicated. In order to effectively prove that the establishment is liable, you should work with a skilled personal injury attorney who can help you investigate and prepare a strong claim.

Evidence that can be used to prove liability in dram shop cases:

  • Eyewitness testimony - did other guests see the person visibly intoxicated and being served drinks?
  • Records of purchase - is there a record of how many drinks the individual purchased?
  • Surveillance - footage can help prove excessive alcohol being served to an individual
