Financial Compensation For Drunk Driving Crash Victims & Families in South Carolina
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney represents drunk driving victims and their families, helping them find the financial compensation they need and deserve. Here are a few thoughts from Brian on the legal options available to these victims and families in South Carolina:
The legal options available to drunk driving victims and their families vary from state to state. While all states allow these victims to file personal injury lawsuits against the drunk driver, there are many states with a second option, known as a “dram shop” claim. Dram shop claims are filed against alcohol vendors who overserved a drunk driver prior to the crash.
South Carolina does not have a specific dram shop statute – however, the state does allow alcohol vendors to be sued for injuries caused by their customers, depending on the circumstances of the crash.
In South Carolina, those injured by drunk drivers and the families of those killed in fatal DUI crashes may have grounds for a lawsuit against the alcohol vendor who served that driver if the driver was either under 21 years of age or visibly intoxicated at the time they were served.
If your family has recently been affected by a drunk driving crash in South Carolina, you can learn more about your legal options by contacting an experienced drunk driving crash victims attorney.
