Commentary on Motorcycle Accident on Southwestern Avenue

Just to be clear up front, reports bringing up alcohol does not guarantee it was a factor. I've had folks come to me where authorities blamed them for all sorts of things only for more thorough investigations to show police got the facts wrong and were just jumping to conclusions. The same could prove true here, as well.

But if alcohol was a factor, that doesn't change the important of looking at what possible avenues Texas law makes available to victims to get the help they need. Even alcohol can be a unique situation if it turned out that a local establishment illegally over-served the driver and is liable under dram shop law for their role in the accident. Is that one of the possibilities authorities looked into here? If not, it could be a sign this crash would be better off in the hands of independent professionals.
