Commentary on Pedestrian Accident on McLean in El Paso
Folks tend to assume pedestrian accidents are always open-and-shut, but that's not always true. It's not always just about whether or not someone was in a crosswalk. It could also involve something like alcohol, in which case dram shop law could demand looking into whether or not a bar illegally over-served someone and is therefore liable for their role in the accident. I'm not saying that happened here, of course, but it's an example of why thorough investigations are always important.
