Commentary on Carrollton Man Car Accident on Mountain Creek in Dallas

Any mention of alcohol is going to give cause for concern, especially following a fatal crash. This late at night, though, the possibility becomes more concerning due to the possibility some local alcohol provider had a hand in causing this man's tragic death. But how can that be?

Put simply, Texas has what's called dram shop law. It basically says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Plenty of bars, restaurants, and other venues across the metroplex have no qualms with breaking the law and putting the community--and even their own customers--in serious danger.

That's why over thirty years, I've helped hundreds of people confront these negligent businesses to ensure they're held accountable for the harm they cause and the loved ones families lose due to such avoidable, selfish recklessness.

Now, I obviously can't say if any of that happened here without more thorough investigations. But making sure folks understand their rights and the nuances of Texas law is important after any serious crash. This tragedy isn't likely to be an exception.
