Carlos Romero Injured in Alleged Drunk Driving Accident in McKinney, TX

To be clear up front, I'm not here to lecture anyone. That's not my place. This blog is a place to discuss unusual or little-known areas of the law, and accidents involving alcohol involve particularly complex laws. This is due to Dram Shop Law. If investigations show that a driver was drinking at a local establishment, such as a bar or restaurant, that establishment can be liable for the crash. Dram Shop Law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. So while it's not clear if that happened here, the allegations from police and the reported seriousness of the victim's injuries make it an important possibility to consider.
