People tend to read about crashes like this and just assume there's nothing else to consider. Even if these allegations are true, there may be more to this situation. Texas has a unique area of the law called Dram Shop Law. Basically, it says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. So, for example, if a someone is on their way home from a restaurant or bar, that establishment could be responsible if they broke the law and contributed to a serious drunk driving crash. Not only would Dram Shop see them held accountable, it could provide an avenue for the victims and families affected to get the help they need. So, did something like that happen here? At the very least, there should be more thorough investigations to find out what all did happen here.
