Commentary:

If this driver is found to be guilty of intoxication in the accident, the driver is, of course, responsible for his or her actions and should be punished for the crime. However, in states like Texas, there may be another guilty party, and it’s not one that the general public often thinks about.

What I’m talking about is a bar, restaurant, or other alcohol provider. In Texas, if a bar over-serves a customer past the point of obvious intoxication, that bar assumes responsibility if the customer then causes an accident resulting in injury or death.

This law was created not to let drunk drivers off the hook, but to add an additional penalty to bars so they won’t take advantage of their customers, which helps prevent drunk-driving accidents from happening in the future.

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.
