Specifically, Texas dram shop law can be a significant tool for victims and families in need. It essentially says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. While authorities may get a driver their day in court, dram shop provides an avenue for assistance as well as a path to holding a negligent business accountable and making the community safer for everyone. That's why incidents like the one described here are often best off in the hands of independent professionals. Are those steps being taken here?
