Commentary on David Reynolds Single-Vehicle Accident in Harrison County
People tend to overlook crashes like this because they figure if police say someone did something wrong, that's where the story ends. That can be true, but Texas law sometimes has unique avenues people aren't aware of.
For example, authorities allege that alcohol was a factor here. A lot of crashes similar to this one involve someone who was coming from a bar or restaurant, and evidence then shows that establishment illegally over-served them. If an establishment does so and that leads to a crash, those hurt in the crash may be able to hold that alcohol provider accountable through dram shop law.
Even if someone may have mistakes of their own to answer for, the law is nuanced to recognize those people can still get the help they need, especially if someone else's negligent played a role in their injuries. Could it be that something like that led to this crash, as well?
