Commentary on Doris Edwards Alleged DWI Accident in Dallas

While folks tend to look at drunk driving wrecks as open-and-shut, getting help for the victims and involved can often be complex. Not many people realize that investigations should include not just the allegedly drunk drivers but also the establishment that gave them the alcohol. Why is that?

Put simply, 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. Many bars and other venues get off scot-free because even authorities don't always know about dram shop. That's why I do what I can to ensure as many people know their rights as possible. When crashes like this happen, those involved deserve to know what next steps there could be toward making things right. Were those steps ever taken here?
