Commentary on Car Accident on Trammel Fresno Rd in Missouri City

If blood tests confirm alcohol was involved here, some may think that just means the driver will be charged accordingly. However, there may be other issues to address.

For one thing, criminal punishment won't help the injured woman get back on her feet. Any DWI crash victim, even the suspected drunk driver, deserves whatever assistance they can get with the long road to recovery. That's why it's important the people affected by this crash know about Texas dram shop law.

Driver Injured in Solo Accident on Trammel Fresno Rd in Missouri City, TX

Under dram shop law, licensed alcohol providers who over-serve an obviously intoxicated person may be liable for damages she causes or suffers while under the influence. A dram shop claim against a reckless bar lets injured victims seek much-needed help and makes sure the offending business faces consequences for endangering its customers and the public.

Unfortunately, police don't look too hard for dram shop violations. If a bar may have broken the law it's often better to seek proof of that independently with the right allies' help. Armed with receipts, witness statements, security footage, and other evidence, many folks have successfully held bad alcohol providers accountable for the damage they had a hand in.
