Commentary on Mohammad Tawheed Hassan Alleged DWI Accident in Euless

These are incredibly concerning details, and if the allegations here are true, then it would appear someone's unbelievable recklessness may have changed a family's life forever. That's not the kind of thing to take lightly, and authorities clearly took steps here to see there are consequences. But will those consequences be enough? Is there really just one person to pin all the blame on, or could there be more to this situation that requires more thorough independent investigations?

Here's why I say that. Drunk driving is a big problem here in Texas. That's why there are significant consequences people can face when contributing to a serious accident resulting from alcohol. Drivers are not the only ones these laws cover. Some laws apply to the alcohol providers that often contribute to serious drunk driving wrecks by over-serving their customers. One crucial area of the law for victims and families to consider is Dram Shop Law.

Basically, Dram Shop Law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Consider, for example, that someone goes out to a bar drinking all the way up until closing time at around 2:00 a.m. They get so drunk that hours later, they're still over the legal limit. That may sound extreme, but it's incredibly common, and watching people stumble out into the streets after last call is proof enough of that. If that person wakes up to go to work, and they're still drunk because the bar recklessly over-served them hours prior to the crash, that bar could be liable for a resulting crash.

Not only is Dram Shop an important tool for victims and families who need help after serious accidents, but it's also a tool to help make our roads safer. A negligent establishment on the other end of an effective Dram Shop case will get the message loud and clear to clean up their act. So while it's not clear if anything like that happened here, there's more than enough reason to find out for sure. Are authorities taking those steps, or will there need to be more thorough, independent investigations to get this man's family the answers they deserve?
