Commentary on William Garza Gomez Car Accident in Dallas

Just to be clear up front, I'm not here to speculate or to criticize anyone. On the contrary, I'm wondering if this crash really got the attention it deserved. I find too often that even the authorities tend to move on when it appears as though the driver in a crash did something wrong. Here, authorities say alcohol was a factor. Whenever that happens, it's crucial to find out if a local establishment recklessly over-served the victim and caused them to engage in reckless behavior.

What do I mean by that exactly? Well, in Texas, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Anyone who's been outside a bar at last call knows what this looks like. Bars and other establishments routinely break the law all for the sake of business without any regard for the safety of their communities or even their own customers.

Having helped hundreds of families seek out these negligent businesses, I've seen just how serious the consequences of that behavior can be. There were even times that evidence showed servers literally pouring drinks down someone's throat while they were barely conscious, then helping them get to their car. I'm not saying anything like that happened here, but someone lost their life here. If nothing else, that warrants every effort to ensure the victim's loved ones know they're getting the full story. That's especially true if there's someone out there whose negligent actions contributed to the tragic accident. Are steps being taken here to consider these possibilities?
