Commentary on Dallas Man Motorcycle Accident on Hardy Oak in San Antonio

It's obviously serious anytime authorities bring up alcohol, but there are a few things folks should keep in mind reading those concerning claims. For one, it's unclear what the actual cause of the crash was. For all we know, investigations could show the feature or defect of the road which made the vehicle bottom out was a known issue that the city failed to address. That's absolutely worth considering. But if alcohol was a factor, that, too, can result in unique legal consequences families need to be prepared for.

Specifically, when alcohol leads to a crash, it's important to find out where the alcohol came from. This is due to dram shop law says. which says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. A business benefiting off of illegal actions which lead to someone's death should be worth appropriate consequences, right? Experience has shown how Dram shop is an effective punishment while also being an important tool for assisting victims and families.

Again, I can't say if any of that was or wasn't a factor here, but my main concern is people may be quick to simply write off this man's death. Even months later, though, there could be important information for independent investigators to bring to light. If nothing else, ensuring the victim's loved ones are getting the full story may reason enough to look into these events more thoroughly.
