Tourism and seasonal vacationers make up a significant part of the economy of South Carolina coastal communities. During the tourist high season from spring through autumn, restaurants, bars and nightclubs overflow with people out for a good time. While most of the establishments take their responsibilities seriously, some continue to serve alcohol longer after a patron has had enough. These drinkers get behind the wheels of cars, mopeds, scooters and other vehicles, with very little knowledge of unfamiliar roads.
South Carolina has laws that allow a party injured by a DUI driver to sue the establishment that continued to serve the liquor and allowed the patron to drive away drunk. These so-called dram shop laws allow people to seek punitive damages on top of compensatory damages for medical care, lost earnings and pain associated with their injuries.
If you were involved in a DUI accident, there may be an establishment or even an individual property owner who shares legal liability for compensating you for your injuries.
