San Antonio Drunk Driving Accident Victim Lawyers
Drunk driving is one of the most dangerous behaviors a driver can engage in, and sadly, as we at the Chris Mayo Law Firm know all too well, this behavior injures many innocent people in San Antonio every year. What many people do not know, however, is that a drunk driver can not only be held criminally liable for their actions, but also civilly liable for the consequences they have on other people. Furthermore, drunk driving accident victims sometimes have the ability to also hold other parties responsible, such as bars and other similar establishments.
Liability for Drunk Driving Accidents
Though the ultimate responsibility for a drunk driving accident and the consequences it has on a victim’s life lies with the drunk driver him or herself, there are other parties that may also carry some responsibility for such an accident. Under Texas law, other parties may possibly be held accountable through:
Dram shop liability holds bars, restaurants, and other establishments that serve alcohol liable for accidents when they serve a person who clearly is drunk and presents a danger to others. Social host liability, on the other hand, holds people who allow minors to drink on their premises accountable for the harm a drunk minor causes to other people.
