Commentary on Christopher Bledsoe Motorcycle Accident in Venus

Just to be clear up front, addressing accidents like this is never to upset anyone or to make a tragic situation worse. On the contrary, from the people I speak to on a near daily basis, one of the worst things for a family in need is to be left in the dark. Too often, authorities and even colleagues of mine try to keep information from people, telling victims and families to simply leave all the hard stuff to them. Having professionals on your side is absolutely prudent, but few tools are as valuable as knowing what rights Texas law gives to victims and families and what those rights could mean. But why do I bring all of this up?

To put it simply, reports mentioning the victim's BAC can present a very complex situations for a family. Obviously allegations of drunk driving are serious, and it's important there are more thorough investigations to confirm whether or not those tests are even accurate. But if they are, it's crucial to find out where that alcohol came from. There could be a local business responsible for contributing to this tragic fatal accident.

According to Texas dram shop law, an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. At just under three times the legal limit, a bar, restaurant, or other venue serving someone to that point almost certainly broke the law in doing so. Should that business get off scot-free simply because no one bothered to tell the victim's loved ones that this law even existed?

That's why it's important to address topics like dram shop, even if they're rather grim. Getting a victim's loved ones the help and the answers they need should always be a priority, but that can mean looking into things that even the authorities aren't always equipped to handle on their own. Whatever ultimately led to this crash, it remains to be seen if the proper steps are being taken to bring the full story to light.
