Commentary on Car Accident on Marina Bay Drive in League City

If it's true that alcohol led to this crash, there could be other factors here the victims and families need to know. Police tend to put all the focus on the drunk driver--understandably so--but there could also be a local alcohol provider responsible for contributing to the crash. This is due to dram shop law.

The law basically says that an alcohol provider who over-serves an obviously intoxicated person can be liable for damages resulting from that intoxication. Bars, liquor stores, restaurants, and other businesses have rules to follow. Failing to following these rules means people can get hurt, which is why dram shop is a vital source of assistance for those people as well as a tool for holding those negligent businesses accountable for their actions. Have these factors been looked into here?
