Commentary on Andrew Humphrey Motorcycle Accident in Grimes County

It clearly stands out that alcohol may be a factor here. The victim reportedly admitted to drinking just two beers. Quite frankly, it's a bit of a cliche at this point for a drunk driver to say they only had two drinks when they actually had a lot more. To be clear, I have no reason to doubt the man's claim, but even so, it's worth addressing just how complex an alcohol-related crash can be in Texas.

Anyone hurt in a crash involving alcohol needs to understand Dram Shop Law. The law basically says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. This could be a bar, a restaurant, a liquor store, or even a gas station. These negligent businesses cause harm to the community, so it's only just that victims and families have the opportunity to hold them accountable for their actions.

Again, that may not be at all what happened here. But considering the reportedly serious injuries resulting from this crash, I think it's more important to consider all possible legal avenues to get help for those injuries.
