Ammons Law Firm Resolves Personal Injury Dram Shop Case Against Defendant Dollar General

Houston, Texas – The Ammons Law Firm, a distinguished personal injury law firm, is pleased to announce the successful resolution of a case on behalf of its client against defendant Dollar General. To protect the privacy of the parties involved, the names of the plaintiff and the details of the settlement will remain confidential.

The case was brought before the 37th Judicial District Court of Bexar County, Texas. The lawsuit stemmed from a fatal accident that occurred after an already drunk driver purchased alcohol at Dollar General’s store located in Center Point, Texas. The drunk driver, exhibiting signs of intoxication, purchased a 24 oz. beer from Dollar General’s register, as observed by the store manager. It was claimed that any reasonable person in contact with the defendant driver should have known he was intoxicated.

After the sale, the drunk driver left the store and proceeded to drive north on SH-16. Tragically, he veered into the southbound lane, colliding with several motorcyclists who were riding in a staggered formation.   

The Ammons Law Firm alleged that Dollar General, as the establishment responsible for the sale of alcoholic beverages, violated the Texas Dram Shop Act. It was asserted that Dollar General’s employees were acting within the scope of their employment and should have recognized that the motorist was obviously intoxicated, thereby preventing the sale.

By reaching a settlement, the Ammons Law Firm has secured a favorable outcome for its client. “We understand the challenges and complexities surrounding dram shop act claims, but it is crucial to hold establishments accountable for their role in selling alcohol to visibly intoxicated individuals. By doing so, we not only seek justice for our clients but also aim to promote safer practices within the community. It is our duty to advocate for those who have suffered harm due to the negligence of establishments, and we will continue to fight for accountability and the prevention of future tragedies,” said founding attorney Rob Ammons.

With a commitment to client advocacy and a track record of success, the firm remains dedicated to providing diligent representation.
