Scene of the Accident
In the years I’ve been researching and handling drunk driving accidents like this one, I’ve found that the vast majority of them contain a common thread. The overwhelming majority of drivers in drunk driving accidents have just come from a bar or other licensed liquor seller/server. Many states have got with the program and started holding bars accountable for when they serve a customer too much to drink before they cause an accident. States that don’t currently have any liquor liability laws to speak of need to get with the program, and accidents like this one only serve to underscore the need.
