Commentary on Ramine Nabizadeh Accident on FM 1314 in Porter

If clear evidence confirms the suspect was under the influence of alcohol as police believe, he may face some legal consequences for his choices. That's not for me to remark upon, though, and he'll have his day in court.

Instead, it's more useful to talk about ways to help the people he hurt get back on their feet. If intoxication was a factor then it's important they know about Texas dram shop law and how it could help them.

Dram shop law basically says that a licensed alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person may be liable for injuries their customer causes while under the influence. That means bars, restaurants, liquor stores, and other businesses can be held legally accountable if their over-service was the reason a drunk driver hurt someone.

Not only does dram shop law help victims and families get back on their feet after these harmful experiences, it's also a way to punish negligent alcohol providers and keep them from putting communities in further danger. Despite its importance, though, police rarely do much about bad bars because their priorities lie elsewhere and they rarely have the time or resources to hunt down negligent businesses. It's often better to have independent investigators look into that rather than waiting for police to take action.
