Paralyzed South Carolina Woman Sues Bar For Drunk Driving Liability

Posted By The Carlson Law Firm || 2-Jan-2012

A South Carolina woman, who was paralyzed in an accident after ordering alcoholic beverages despite her status of being underage, is suing the bar that failed to check her identification prior to consumption and the resulting drunk driving crash, she alleges.

Not only does the woman claim the bar failed to check her identification and confirm her age. She also says they continued serving her drinks despite impairment.

The accident that resulted after the woman left the bar caused serious, long-term injuries, leaving her a paraplegic.

Accidents caused by drunk driving and DWI’s are sometimes traced back to negligence of bars, employees and establishments serving alcohol. By selling alcohol to visibly intoxicated patrons or serving alcohol to minors, a bar or restaurant, employees and owners can sometimes be held liable for accidents resulting, deaths of third parties and injury to those who were not related to the consumption.
