During a trial, you never know what a juror is thinking!

Jurors are very unpredictable! We know that, there are three kinds of jurors, but during a trial, anyone can change. Specially, if the subject of the trial is controversial, complicated or boring. We saw that this past week in Federal Court, and thus this post.

We believe in the system that we have in America, but, can a juror get it wrong? When both sides have strong arguments, credible witnesses and a lot of facts to back up their story, what do jurors focus on? It would be interesting to know, as a litigator, what those jurors are thinking during your argument, or during your questioning of a particular witness.

What if one side has so much money that, the other side looks ill prepared. What if one side can bring experts, videos and gadgets and the other side can't? Is that equal? What if one side is backed up by an insurance company, and the other one is not?

Our jurisprudence system was created with justice and equality for all. Our founding fathers envisioned a system where, a jury of your peers, would be the judges of the facts. But what if they get it wrong? What if the jurors are confused. What if the jurors fall asleep and the most likable party gets their vote. What if the jurors are so tired, that they just want to leave?

It is an honor to work in a system that is fair and impartial for all. But, is it equal? We believe that, the more green you have, the easier it becomes to get justice for your client. Maybe the more green its spent to prepare for a trial, the better outcome will be for your client. Is that equal? It is fair! And, it is impartial....never equal!

Texas Dram Shop Liability

Many individuals have been injured as a result of alcohol consumption in Texas. Many people don't know that, the person that served them the alcohol, could be liable to them for the injuries suffered. This is called "Dram Shop" laws.

This law allows individuals to bring civil action against a person(s) who serves, sells, or provides alcohol to someone who is visibly intoxicated to the extent that such person presents a clear and obvious danger to self or others.

All the injured party has to do is prove that the intoxicated person was served alcohol after being obviously intoxicated, and the intoxication was the proximate cause of the damage incurred. In other words, the bartender knew you were drunk, but kept on serving you. The Texas Dram Shop Act was passed in 1987 and extended in April 1993.

The Act allows the intoxicated person to sue for damages. There are some obsticles that the injured person has to overcome. Mainly, the Comparative Responsibility Act, which applies to the dram shop laws. This Act holds that the intoxicated person can recover damages, but only if the establishment is more responsible, than the individual, for the individual’s intoxication.

Our lawyers have been sucessful in helping Texans recover against the bars, clubs or other establishments, for Dram Shop liability. If you believe that you were a victim of negligence, please call us at (210) 979-9777.
