Dallas auto accident lawyer Explains: What is the Dram Shop Law?
Dallas Drunk Driving Accident Attorney Amy Witherite of Eberstein & Witherite, LLP works hard to protect the rights of these innocent victims
DALLAS, Oct. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- (Dallas accident lawyer - Amy Witherite news) Every year, drunk drivers kill and hurt innocent victims. Dallas Drunk Driving Accident Attorney Amy Witherite of Eberstein & Witherite, LLP works hard to protect the rights of these innocent victims. She represents them in lawsuits against the drunk drivers and in negotiations with insurance companies. Here, she explains why a drunk driver may not be the only person or entity legally responsible for the injuries caused in a drunk driving accident.
While a drunk driver should be held accountable for his actions, other parties may also be to blame for drunk driving accidents. Texas law holds accountable bar owners, business owners, and others who serve or provide alcohol to visibly intoxicated people. If it is obvious that a person is intoxicated to the point that he presents a clear danger to himself and others, a duty arises to stop providing him with alcohol. If a business continues to serve or provide alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person who later causes a traffic accident, the business may be held liable for the victim's damages. These damages include: mental anguish, disfigurement, physical pain, loss of earning capacity, and loss of future earnings. Damages may also be awarded to cover a victim's medical costs, including the costs associated with future care.
If you have been seriously injured or if your loved one has died as a result of a collision caused by a drunk driver, you may be entitled to compensation.
