Commentary on Hockley Woman Alleged DWI Accident on W. Mount Houston in Houston

Anytime alcohol contributes to a crash, there are usually consequences for the intoxicated driver. Most everyone knows that. What folks don't often know, however, is there can also be a local business responsible for contributing to the accident.

If a bar, for example, over-served the driver while they were obviously intoxicated, that bar can be liable for their actions under dram shop law. Not only does this give victims and families a unique opportunity to pursue assistance, it also helps get those negligent businesses to clean up their act. Is that something authorities are looking into here? In the hundreds of dram shop cases I've handled, it usually took independent investigations to consider these possibilities. The same could prove true here.
