Protection for Victims of Alcohol-Related Crimes
On July 1, 2017, South Carolina passed the Dram Shop bill, requiring alcohol-serving businesses or individuals to have liability insurance.
Specifically, the legislation requires that any business that renews or applies for an on-premise alcohol license from the South Carolina Department of Revenue that sells alcohol after 5 pm be required to carry a minimum $1 million liquor liability policy. Prior to the passage of the bill there was no such requirement in place.
The attorneys at KD Trial Lawyers are very familiar with the industry standards that must be met by bars and restaurants that serve alcohol to patrons. If you or a family member has been harmed by an individual that may have been over served by a bar or restaurant, we can help.
