Commentary on David Winters Motorcycle Accident in Fort Worth

If what authorities said here proves to be true, then there could be more to this than just a reckless drunk driver needing their day in court. With details like this, further investigations can often show there's an accomplice that is also responsible for the victim's injuries: a local alcohol provider.

To put it simply, it's illegal in Texas for bars and other establishments to serve people who are already drunk. Dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication.

Unfortunately, this isn't the kind of thing authorities tend to look into. I can't begin to count how man times a family asked me to look into a drunk driving wreck, and we were able to track down an establishment that was continuing to put the community in danger because they had yet to face any consequences. Dram shop can be those consequences while also getting folks some much needed help. Again, I can't say what did or didn't happen here, but are the proper steps being taken to look into the glaring red flags I'm seeing in these reports?
