Commentary on Mark Gray Accident in Montgomery County
If blood tests confirm the victim was impaired as police suspect, some may think that mostly just means he'll face some related charges. However, it could also mean that he's not the only one to hold accountable for the accident--and that someone else may owe him some help with getting back on his 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 he causes (even to himself) 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 law-breaking vendors. 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 bad businesses accountable for the damage they helped cause.
