Victims of Drunk Driver file Wrongful Death Suit against Drunk Driver and Local Strip Club
 
Earlier this month, 37-year-old Brian Manring lost his life when he was involved in an accident with James Combs. Shortly after the accident, Mr. Combs failed a field sobriety test and blew more than twice the legal limit. According to officials, Mr. Combs was at a South Houston strip club for several hours immediately before making the fateful decision to drive home drunk. According to the lawsuit, Mr. Combs was over-served by the strip club before the fatal collision.
 
In addition to being subject to Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission regulations, restaurants, bars, and other establishments may be sued when they over-serve their patrons, who get behind the wheel drunk. When servers, bartenders, waiters, and managers allow their patrons to become heavily intoxicated, not only do they risk a fine from the TABC, they risk a wrongful death lawsuit. According to the Alcoholic Beverage Code, when an establishment continues to provide alcohol to an obviously intoxicated individual, who presents a clear danger to himself and others, the establishment can be held liable for the injuries caused by the intoxicated patron. Texas Courts have often held establishments responsible for the deadly crashes caused by their patrons. These are often referred to as dram shop cases.
 
At The Pinkerton Law Firm, we seek to hold everyone accountable for the injuries they cause. If you or a loved one has been injured or killed by a drunk driver, talk to a lawyer with The Pinkerton Law Firm about whether or not you have a possible dram shop case.
