If it's true that alcohol contributed to this crash, there will likely be consequences for the intoxicated driver. But for people in need of help, it's important to understand there could be an accomplice to all of this who also needs to be held responsible.

A lot of crashes like this involve someone coming from a local bar or similar establishment. If evidence shows that establishment over-served the diver while they were obviously intoxicated, then that business can be liable under dram shop law for their role in the crash.

Not only is dram shop a vital tool for getting people the help they need, it's also a way to hold those negligent businesses accountable and to get them to clean up their act. Having helped hundreds of people confront those negligent establishments, I know how important it is to be informed on this topic and seek out the necessary tools to navigate such a complex legal process.
