Commentary on Justin Trujillo Accident in Corpus Christi

If blood tests confirm alcohol was involved here as authorities suspect, some may think that just means the driver will be charged accordingly. However, knowing intoxication was a factor would mean there could be other issues to address.

For one thing, criminal punishment won't help the injured man get back on his feet. Any DWI crash victim, even the suspected drunk driver, deserves whatever assistance they can get with the long road to recovery. That's why it's important to talk about Texas dram shop law.

Under dram shop law, licensed alcohol providers who over-serve an obviously intoxicated person may be liable for injuries he causes--even to himself--while under the influence. A dram shop claim against a reckless bar lets DWI accident victims seek much-needed help and makes sure the offending business faces consequences for endangering its customers and the public.

Unfortunately, police don't look very hard for law-breaking businesses. If a bar or other vendor may have contributed to the victim's injuries with over-service then it's often better to seek proof of that independently with the right allies' help. Armed with the evidence those experts find, many folks have held bad alcohol providers properly accountable for the damage they had a hand in.
