Commentary on Tanner Bills Motorcycle Accident in Collin County

I just want to be clear that further investigations could show there's more to this crash which authorities have yet to address. But when I see reports include details suggesting a victim was under the influence of alcohol, I can't help wondering if some local establishment contributed to their death and has yet to be held accountable.

Put simply, it's illegal in Texas for bars and other businesses to serve someone who is obviously intoxicated. If they do so, and that leads to them or others getting hurt, then the establishment can be liable for their role in the crash under dram shop law.

While this can certainly be a vital source of help for victims and families, it's also important just to ensure there is some accountability. Maybe nothing like that happened here, but if a business in the community had a hand in a man losing his life, shouldn't there be appropriate consequences for that?
