Commentary on Matthew Changrae Cho Possible DWI Accident in Dallas
If investigations find that alcohol was a factor here, that could create a rather complex scenario for those involved. It's not always as simple as just ensuring a driver sees their day in court. Many drunk driving accidents also involve alcohol providers that can be liable for the victim's injuries.
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, restaurants, liquor stores, gas stations--a business breaking the law and getting people hurt needs to face the appropriate consequences. Dram shop can see this happens while also helping the victims and families. Are investigators looking into that possibility here?
