Commentary on Car Accident on W. Mount Houston Road

It's not unusual for authorities to look into alcohol after just about any crash, and there are a few reasons why that is helpful. One the authorities don't often discuss, however, is dram shop law. Essentially, the law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. However, it's possible that's all just speculation, and alcohol had nothing to do with this crash. Were authorities thorough in looking into other possibilities? One way or another? Getting folks the help they need means getting them answers. It remains to be seen if the right people looked into this crash to make sure nothing important slipped through the cracks.
