I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, states that do not have adequate liquor liability laws really need to get with the program, and the rest of the country. In the State of Texas, lawmakers saw the danger in an unregulated liquor industry, and saw fit to govern it with a set of liquor liability laws, or dram shop laws that hold alcohol businesses to a higher standard than before. This means, if a bar servers a sober customer to the point of gross intoxication, or serve alcohol to an already drunk individual, they are potentially liable for any accident that customer causes. Bars will only see drunk drivers as a liability if they are held liable for drunk driving accidents they helped cause.

I'm a former employee. I had brought up this exact scenario and suggested a maintenance procedure that would eliminate the possibility of this type injury. Obviously my warning went unheeded.

I was actually a couple cars back from this wreck, one of the first on the scene, and helped administer CPR on the victims. The truck driver was going way too fast, but it was actually his trailer that swung around and hit the suv, the semi-truck ended in the median.

A lot of people say smack about lawyers, but I want to say that I'm glad there is a way that people who are wronged by corporate neglect can get justice and force change. We are living in a world where corporations and govt care less than ever about common people, and I support your work. I hope I will never need your services.

Thank you for posting these accident articles on your site. At the company that I work for, e deal with monitoring construction activity and work around trenches and all sorts of construction equipment/vehicles. I sometimes wonder if construction companies have enough safety training to inform employees of how to protect themselves while on the job.
