Commentary on Steven Bailey, Nancy Lopez Car Accident in Bexar County

It's possible alcohol came up here simply out of speculation, and evidence could show it had nothing to do with the crash. If alcohol was a factor, however, that can warrant far more thorough independent investigations. Specifically, finding out if a local establishment over-served an intoxicated driver could be a vital source of help for the victims involved.

This is due to 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, and even gas stations can be held accountable for their role in a serious accident. This can give families a significant opportunity to get help while also getting those businesses to clean up their act before more people get hurt. Were steps ever taken here to consider those possible factors?
