Holding Bars And Bar Employees Accountable
While many people are vaguely aware that businesses can be held accountable for their role in drunk driving accidents, people are unsure of their rights. It turns out you may have more options than you think. When businesses sell, serve or otherwise provide alcohol to an obviously intoxicated person, they are just as responsible as the drunk driver for any injuries or deaths that result.
Determining Bar Owners Responsibility
Our experienced personal injury work with experts to determine levels of alcoholic absorption and investigate a number of factors to determine liability in these cases, including:
- Alcohol-related promotions such as happy hours
- Whether or not the restaurant completed the required program from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission
- The lack of a policy guiding bar employees on when not to serve obviously intoxicated patrons
