Commentary on Henrietta Man Car Accident on River Road in Wichita County

Any allegation of alcohol is important to take seriously. Perhaps evidence would show it wasn't involved here, but even if it was, the situation may not be as simple as folks would think. That's because a lot of situations like the one described here involve dram shop law, meaning there could be a local business responsible for contributing to all of this.

Simply put, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. I've confronted hundreds of businesses on behalf of families harmed because those establishments would rather push sales than keep their communities safe. Doing so can not only hold them accountable but also get people some much needed help. Was that ever looked into here.
