Pedestrian Possible Drunk Driving Accident Cockrell Hill i 30 Dallas, TX

If investigations confirm that alcohol was a factor here, then it's absolutely crucial to find out where that alcohol came from. It's obviously to most people that someone can face consequences for driving drunk, but something few people ever talk about is the role that alcohol providers play in serious accidents. In Texas, if a business over-serves someone who is obviously intoxicated, they can be liable for a resulting accident under dram shop law. This is why looking into any accident involving alcohol is so crucial, but that's especially true just half an hour after bars close. The chances are a lot higher that someone at that time had been drinking at a local establishment. If that's what happened here, the victim deserves an opportunity to exercise their right to confront all responsible parties for the injuries they suffered. Were steps taken here to bring the whole story to light?
