Columbia Country Clubs and Dram Shop Liability Attorneys

If you or a loved one was the victim of a drunk driving accident, you may be entitled to compensation from the establishment that over-served the driver. Laws that stem from the dram shop act enable victims to recover compensation from establishments that continue to serve alcohol to intoxicated persons who later cause accidents. Bars and restaurants are the most common offenders of over-serving patrons, but country clubs have also been found liable and have faced serious consequences in recent years for their contribution to drunk driving accidents.

At Goings Law Firm, LLC, our Columbia country club dram shop liability attorneys can help you with every step of the legal process to get the justice you deserve in your case. We will track down all parties responsible for the circumstances that caused your injuries, making sure that they contribute to your recovery and putting you in the best possible position for success in your claim. Call us today at (803) 350-9230 to get started in a free consultation.

Why Do I Need an Attorney?

In a serious car accident caused by a drunk driver, injuries can be complex and recovery times can be long. It is essential that you put all of your energy into the recovery process, but legal proceedings can be a time-consuming distraction. With the help of an experienced attorney, you can leave all of the legal details to the professionals while you focus on healing and getting your life back to normal. A skilled attorney from Goings Law Firm, LLC can take all of the stress off your plate right away and can complete the process faster and more efficiently than if you tried to go it alone.

Any legal proceeding can quickly become complicated, especially one that involves multiple parties. If your injuries were the result of a drunk driving accident, you will already have to deal with multiple parties, including the driver and their insurance company. Your ability to recover maximum compensation will increase significantly by adding other responsible parties, such as the country club that was responsible for the driver’s intoxication. Then, the club’s insurance company will get involved and so on. All of a sudden, you have a claim with four, five, or even more parties. Managing this kind of claim requires the assistance of a knowledgeable lawyer to keep the process organized and on track so that you can ultimately make a successful recovery.

About Country Clubs and the Dram Shop Act

Although South Carolina does not have a dram shop statute, our courts do allow injured victims to seek recovery from establishments that served alcohol to the party that ultimately injured them.

Like any other establishment that serves alcohol, country clubs are responsible for following the rules and upholding the liquor laws of South Carolina. However, country club management and staff often bend these rules out of fear of disappointing their high-paying club members, which is no excuse. Laws are laws, and they must be upheld. You and your family should not have to suffer injuries because an expensive country club did not properly enforce the rules for their members.

In early 2019, the South Carolina Bar Association published a comprehensive overview of dram shop liability within our state. The book goes into detail about the latest findings on the toxicology of ethanol and its metabolization rate, which is particularly useful in dram shop cases. The Bar Association also included new information on country club and private club liability. Here at Goings Law Firm, LLC, we are prepared to use this and all other available resources to fight for your rights.
