Commentary on Jennie Pence Car Accident in Grand Prairie

It's entirely possible authorities only brought up alcohol because it's a common factor here in Texas. That said, if alcohol was a factor here, that could result in a rather complex scenario when it comes to getting people the help they need. This is due to the possibility a local bar is liable for contributing to the injuries.

Texas has what's called dram shop law, which says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Bars, liquor stores, restaurants--any business wanting to serve alcohol in our communities agrees to follow the rules. So when they break those rules and people get hurt, they can seek out the tools and allies needed to hold that business responsible for their role in the accident.

Like I said, that may not be what happened here. But seeing hundreds of businesses contribute to accidents like this one and the harm their negligence causes to our communities, I know how important it is to make sure folks are getting the full story.
