Commentary on Ana Reyes Car Accident in Irving

If the details surrounding this incident are true, it would be no surprise to see some serious consequences against this driver going forward. However, that may not be the end of the story. If investigations show the driver had been at a bar or similar venue earlier, then that establishment may also be responsible for contributing to this accident. This is due to dram shop law.

In 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. Bars, liquor stores, restaurants, and even gas stations must follow these rules. Otherwise, people get hurt, and that's why dram shop allows victims and families to confront those negligent businesses when possible. Is that something authorities have looked into here?
