Commentary on Liliana Walls Guerra, Jennifer Neuman, Stacey Christ Car Accident in Blanco County
I certainly wouldn't be able to say who was drinking or if alcohol was even a factor here just because police brought it up. Sometimes, that's simply a minor detail, and no one was actually intoxicated or perhaps something else contributed to the crash. That said, it can result in rather complex legal consequences, so it's important for folks to anticipate the possible hurdles folks can face after a crash like this.
A particularly important potential hurdle that doesn't get enough attention is dram shop law. Basically, the law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Not only can this clean up a negligent business's act before more people get hurt, but it can also be a significant source of help for the victims.
So while I certainly can't say if anything like that applies here, it's a red flag that should never be ignored, either. That's why these incidents are generally better off in the hands of professionals who know to look into even unlikely possibilities so those involved know they're getting all the facts.
