Commentary on Juan Moreno Alleged DWI Accident in Pasadena

If the allegations here are true, then there may yet still be more to the story that authorities have yet to look into. If alcohol was a factor, that could mean there's also a local business that broke the law and contributed to the victim's injuries. When that happens, it's only right they, too, face the appropriate consequences. Most of the time, that means ensuring the victims and families have the opportunity to pursue a dram shop case.

Essentially, dram shop 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 be a significant source of help, it can also ensure a negligent business cleans up its act. Liquor stores, restaurants, bars, even gas stations should face consequences for their recklessness, especially when people get hurt. Yet it may take far more thorough independent investigations to find out if something like that happened here.
