Commentary on Migdalia Aguilar, Tommy Aguilar Alleged Drunk Driver Accident in San Antonio

These are obviously serious allegations. I can't say if they're true or not, but I can say that alcohol can make things rather complex for victims and families in need of assistance. This is due to the fact that there is often a local business involved in drunk driving accidents which can be held accountable for their role in the collision.

This is called dram shop law. Put simply, if a bar over-serves someone who is obviously intoxicated, and that person's intoxication causes an accident, the victims can hold that bar accountable for their injuries. Not only does this provide a significant source of help, it also works to get those businesses to clean up their act, which helps the whole community.

So while I can't say what happened here, I know from experience that there is every reason to investigate the incident more thoroughly. This is especially true if the apparent BAC tests reflect the level of intoxication that contributed to the accident. At nearly three times the legal limit, it would be virtually guaranteed that any business involved illegally over-served that driver. Whatever the case may be, getting folks the help they need means ensuring there are plans in place to navigate these complex legal avenues and get clear answers.
