Commentary on Ralph Aubuchon Alleged DWI Accident in Plano

If the allegations here prove to be true, there will no doubt be consequences for those responsible. The reason I suggest there could be more than one person responsible is due to many alcohol-related accidents involving a local alcohol provider responsible under dram shop law.

Ralph Aubuchon Injured in Alleged DWI Accident in Plano, TX

Essentially, dram shop law says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Whether that's a bar, liquor store, restaurant, or some other establishment, breaking the law and causing harm can't simply go overlooked. Holding them accountable can be a vital source of help for victims and families, but it can also help to ensure that business cleans up their act. That's why I'm concerned whether or not anyone has looked into those possibilities here.
