Commentary on Andres Gonzalo Martinez Alleged DWI Accident in El Paso

Anytime authorities mention alcohol as a potential factor in a crash, it's important to consider more than just that driver's role in the crash. That may sound unusual, but getting people the help they need could mean finding out where that alcohol actually came from. This is because of 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. Not only can this be a significant source of help for the victims and families, but it can also see negligent establishments held accountable just as drunk drivers are held accountable. It remains to be seen if investigators here had the experience and tools to look into those important possible factors.
