If it's true that alcohol was a factor here, where did it come from? Folks don't often realize that the businesses that serve alcohol can contribute to these accidents, and dram shop law allows for them to be held accountable. It 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 vital source of help for the victims and families, it can help ensure those otherwise negligent businesses clean up their act before more people get hurt. Were those factors considered here, or does there need to be more thorough independent investigations?
