Commentary on Ismael Alvarez Possible DWI Accident in Dallas
People tend to think intoxicated drivers would make things a lot simpler, but the opposite is usually true. While it can make it more clear who caused the wreck, many drunk driving wrecks end up falling under what's called dram shop law. Essentially, if a bar over-served the at-fault driver, that establishment can be liable for the victim's injuries since they broke the law and contributed to the crash. Is that something being looked into here?
