Let's say investigations show alcohol was a factor. Was that alcohol illegally over-served by a local bar? That bar could then be liable under dram shop law for their negligence. Alternatively, though, just because other factors may be less common doesn't mean they should be ignored. Even something as relatively rare as a mechanical defect is worth looking into if it means getting folks the help they deserve. Are those steps being taken here?
