The lawsuit states that the driver “began at El Gallo Bar and Grill near Daniel Island … then she made her way to Folly Beach where she began bar hopping down Center Street, making stops at the Drop In, The Crab Shack, and Snapper Jacks. ”
“Despite being noticeably and visibly intoxicated at each of these establishments,” the suit alleges, “Jaime Komoroski continued to be served, provided, and/or allowed to consume alcohol in each of them.”
The suit also alleges that “By the end of the night, Jamie Komoroski was grossly and dangerously intoxicated.”
According to the documents, the establishments, “as licensed sellers of beer, wine, and liquor for consumption pursuant to South Carolina law, had a duty to obey all laws and regulations regarding the sale of alcoholic beverages and exercise due care,” adding that they have “a duty of care not to allow patrons to become intoxicated, to not serve alcohol to intoxicated persons.
