Ector County, TX Single-Vehicle Accident Injures Teen Moss Avenue

While any crash that may involve alcohol is worth attention, one involving a teenager raises serious red flags. While there are certainly ways underage drivers can get their hands on alcohol, it's important to find out if a person or a business gave them that alcohol. Most folks understand doing so can carry legal consequences, but one they may not know about is Dram Shop Law. Essentially, the law says that if someone provides alcohol to a minor, and that alcohol causes an accident, then that business or individual can be liable for the crash. This is important both for getting people the help they need and for ensuring people are held fully accountable for their actions. Is anyone looking into those possibilities here?
