Commentary on Timothy Lee Harr Car Accident in Lubbock

These are absolutely serious allegations, and if they prove to be true, there will no doubt be steps taken for those responsible to answer for their actions. As much as people understand that, however, they may not realize there is often more to these situations that can easily go overlooked. Specifically, if police think alcohol was a factor here, it's possible some local business should also have their time to answer for their actions.

In Texas, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. A college town like Lubbock is a good example of a place where businesses routinely break the rules to line their own pockets. The fact that puts the community and even their own customers in danger rarely means anything to those businesses.

That's why using dram shop to hold them accountable and to get victims and families the help they deserve can be a crucial step forward. As I said, it's not clear if any of that would apply to this specific wreck. But considering a man lost his life, would a family be okay wondering in the back of their mind if someone that contributed to that loss wasn't held accountable?
