When bars decide to put their desire for alcohol revenues over fulfilling their obligation to public safety, it puts all of us at risk.
In the case we'll discuss today, the bar involved over-served a woman to such an outrageous degree that, while attempting to sleep it off in her car, she passed away from alcohol poisoning.
This case involved a motorcyclist who was massively over-served by Big Mouth Burgers, a casual dining restaurant in Alice, TX, near Corpus Christi. After leaving the restaurant, he crashed his bike and sustained fatal injuries.
One such case involved a teenage boy who killed himself as a result of incredibly careless behavior by adults who allowed him access to both alcohol and a loaded firearm.
