Some folks may look at all this, shrug their shoulders, and just assume this is all just an unavoidable mistake. In reality, this could result in a rather complex legal situation. What may surprise some to hear is that it may not necessarily involve any drivers. How is that? Well, anytime alcohol contributes to an accident, it could fall under Dram Shop Law. The law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Alcohol is obviously dangerous when mishandled, and that's why there are laws allowing folks to hold these negligent businesses accountable. I see no specific details saying that happened here, but it would no doubt be worth further investigations.
