Commentary on Rollover Accident on SW Loop 410 in San Antonio
With the recent information available here, I want to be perfectly clear. I can't say what did or didn't happen here without seeing the evidence for myself. But when people think someone is entirely to blame for a single-vehicle wreck when they had alcohol in their system, they might be wrong. It depends on whether or not a local business recklessly and illegally served the victim to the point they put themselves in danger.
This is due to Texas dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. While I know some people see this as a way to shift blame, that's not at all true. If they saw the businesses I've contended with over the years, they'd understand why giving families the right to confront these businesses is so important. I've seen establishments go so far as to literally pour drinks into a barely-conscious person's throat before later helping them to their car.
At the end of the day, someone lost their life here, and police suspect there could be contributing factors which may in turn suggest someone out there bears responsibility for this tragedy. If someone does something wrong, and people get hurt as a result, they deserve to face the appropriate consequences. It's as simple as that. The question is whether authorities actually cared about getting the family the full story or if they were just looking to close the book on this awful event.
