Under the dram shop law in Texas, bars and restaurants are held accountable for overserving patrons. Too often, these patrons get behind the wheel and cause an accident. Under Texas law, a dram shop claim can be filed against an establishment that serves alcohol to a visibly intoxicated person who is obviously intoxicated to the point of being a clear danger to themselves and others. The establishment that served the alcohol can be held liable for the patrons’ actions after the patron has left the establishment.

The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission (“TABC”) exists to protect the safety of Texans and to regulate the alcoholic beverage industry. It is essential for alcoholic serving establishments to follow and enforce TABC regulations in order to prevent the tragic damage that drunk driving can cause.
