Commentary on Jordan Smith Accident in Harrison County

If blood tests confirm the victim was intoxicated as police suspect, some may think that only means he'll be charged accordingly. However, knowing alcohol was a factor would mean there could be other issues to address.

For one thing, charges won't help the victim get back on his feet. Any DWI crash victim, even the suspected drunk driver, deserves whatever assistance they can get with the often-hard road to recovery. That's why it's important the people affected by these crashes know about Texas dram shop law.

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

Despite the value and importance of dram shop law, though, police don't invest many resources in tracking down law-breaking bars. It's often better to seek proof of over-service independently with the right allies' help. Armed with evidence like receipts, security footage, and witness statements, many people successfully hold negligent alcohol providers accountable for the damage they helped cause.
