The family of a woman involved in a fatal accident outside of a Dallas-area gentleman’s club was awarded $10.5 million by a jury this past February. The accident occurred in the parking lot of the club where the woman was struck and run over by a monster truck. The driver of the monster truck had a blood alcohol content over twice the legal limit.
In Texas, any accident involving a drunk driver can fall into the Dram Shop Doctrine. This means that a bar, restaurant, or other locales that sell alcoholic beverages can be found liable In the event that the driver was drinking at the location before the accident occurred. This requires that the establishment over-served alcohol to a patron they knew was already intoxicated.
