Commentary on Alleged DWI Accident on Wadley Avenue in Midland

Any allegation of intoxicated driving is going to raise concerns, but it's important that the victims and families involved know they're getting the full story. That could mean more than simply punishing an intoxicated driver. It's also important to look into where that driver got their alcohol.

This is due to 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. Bars, liquor stores, restaurants, and even gas stations have these rules to follow. By confronting them, victims and families can get the help they need while also ensuring those businesses clean up their act before more people get hurt. Are those steps being taken here?
