Commentary on Yesenia Lopez Accident in Mesquite

If blood tests confirm the victim was impaired as police suspect, some may think that mostly just means she'll be charged accordingly. However, it could also mean that she's not the only one to hold accountable for her accident--and that someone may owe her some help in getting back on her feet. That's why it's important to know about Texas dram shop law.

Under dram shop law, licensed alcohol providers who over-serve an obviously intoxicated person may be liable for injuries she causes (even to herself) while under the influence. A dram shop claim against a law-breaking bar or other alcohol vendor lets DWI crash victims seek much-needed help and makes sure the business faces consequences for endangering its customers and the public.

Not every DWI crash starts with a dram violation, but the source of the alcohol is an important detail to learn when it may have caused injuries. Despite that, police don't often track down bars or other alcohol-serving businesses who break the law. It's typically more effective to seek proof of over-service with the help of independent experts. Armed with the clear evidence they find, many people successfully hold negligent alcohol providers accountable for the damage they helped cause.
