Commentary on Russell Floyd Car Accident in Lubbock

Russell Floyd Car Accident Lubbock, TX

Early in the morning, there can be some serious factors surrounding a crash like this. One common concern in a college town like Lubbock, of course, is drunk driving. A lot of establishments out west routinely break the law by over-serving people, and those businesses can also be held responsible if the person they over-served causes a wreck. This is called dram shop law, and it's an important factor police don't always look into. That said, this is just one of many possibilities. Whether this was alcohol, cell phones, speeding, fatigue, or even something unusual like mechanical defects, making sure experienced professionals are handling things will no doubt be crucial for getting folks the help they deserve.
