South Carolina’s Dram Shop Law

If you have been involved in a car accident with a drunk driver that was overserved alcohol at an establishment, you should talk to an experienced attorney as soon as possible. In South Carolina, there is a dram shop statute that places liability on bars and restaurants that overserve patrons that are subsequently involved in collisions influenced by intoxication.

S.C. Code Ann. § 61-4-580(2) states that bartenders cannot knowingly “sell beer or wine to an intoxicated person.” A plaintiff must show that the bartender served alcohol to a patron that they knew or should have known was intoxicated. To prove the case, the plaintiff will likely need the assistance of an experienced attorney that will interview witnesses, review surveillance video, and analyze receipts. The attorney will also conduct a thorough investigation of all parties involved to hold the establishment liable for its negligence.

Filing a Claim After Being Injured on an Amtrak Passenger Train

The attorneys at the Solomon Law Group are experienced in making claims involving Amtrak passengers. In order to determine what type of claim needs to be made, whom it needs to be made against, and what your damages are, there must be a thorough investigation conducted by your attorney(s). In a typical collision involving an Amtrak passenger train, there are several contributing factors that may or may not be in Amtrak’s control.

Solomon Law Group has recently resolved a significant claim in an Amtrak collision that was caused by a truck sitting on a railroad. In order to determine the best way to make a claim, the attorneys at the Solomon Law Group had to investigate the owners of the track and the actions that were taken that day by the involved parties. Additionally, research was conducted to determine whether the railroad crossing was in compliance with federal regulations and industry standards.

Are Train Accidents Becoming More Common?

Lately, train accidents have become more common throughout the United States. On Sunday, February 4, 2018, we all woke up to devastating news. News sources reported that Amtrak Train 91 collided with an unmanned CSX train in Cayce, South Carolina, at 2:35 a.m. The train was traveling from New York to Miami.

The cause of the collision appears to be a rail switch that was aligned to the spur (secondary track), causing Amtrak Train 91 to leave its intended route and travel down a track where a CSX train was parked.  Sadly, 116 people were injured, and two Amtrak employees were killed. Our sincere condolences go out to Amtrak’s engineer, Michael Kempf, and Amtrak’s conductor, Michael Cella.
