Commentary on Carlos Garza Jr. Car Accident in Laredo

It's obviously serious to see someone accused of driving while intoxicated and causing a serious accident. But as straight-forward as folks may see all of this, the reality is it could be quite complex depending on if the suspect was indeed intoxicated and if that intoxicant was alcohol. This is due to dram shop law.

In Texas, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. It can be a significant source of assistance for the victims and families, but it can also get those negligent businesses to clean up their act before more people get hurt. Is that something investigators are looking into here?
