Justice For Drunk Driving Crash Victims and Their Families in South Carolina
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney helps drunk driving crash victims and their families fight for the financial compensation they deserve in civil lawsuits. Brian has offered to add a few thoughts on the legal rights of these victims and families in South Carolina:
If you’ve been injured by a drunk driver, you may have grounds for a personal injury lawsuit against the driver who injured you. But in South Carolina and several other states, there are certain situations where people who have been injured by drunk drivers may also have the right to file a lawsuit against the alcohol vendor who served that drunk driver before the crash. These are known as dram shop claims.
In South Carolina, there is not a specific dram shop statute. However, the state’s Supreme Court has made legal decisions which have established rules for dram shop claims. According to South Carolina law, alcohol vendors can be held liable for drunk driving injuries and deaths caused by their customers if the customer was either under 21 years of age or visibly intoxicated when the alcohol was provided to them.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed after being hit by a drunk driver, you can learn more about your family’s legal options by speaking with an experienced drunk driving injury victims attorney.
