Map of the Area
A lot of people will read about a motorcycle crashing off the roadway and just not give the incident another thought. Not only is this detrimental to finding out what happened, it’s ignoring the very real possibility that there may be another party out there who bears responsibility for the crash.
I’ve litigated countless single-vehicle accidents which ended up involving alcohol. The reason I bring this up is because in many of those cases, the driver was illegally over-served by a bar prior to getting behind the wheel. According to Texas Dram Shop Law, victims and families have the right to sue bars if they over-serve alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person who then gets in an accident.
To be clear, I only bring this up because it’s common, especially at this time of night. It’s entirely possible alcohol had nothing to do with this wreck. If it did, however, any bars or other alcohol providers who contributed to this tragic incident need to take responsibility for their negligent actions.
