Not necessarily just because the driver is a known alcoholic, but whether the driver is known to the owner of the vehicle as an incompetent or reckless driver and there is a record to prove it. Of course alcohol could play a big part of that, but it's a case by case fact intensive analysis. I would...Read more »

You most likely do not have a case. The infliction of emotional distress would need to be intentional. Here it sounds like you violated a course and/or university policy and were punished for it. I hope this semester ends on a more positive note.
A Texas attorney could answer your question best, but your post remains open for a week, and could possibly involve notice of claim issues if it was not a private trash collection company.

My brother was extremely over served at a bar in Texas. He left and, approximately 12 minutes later, had an accident resulting in his death. Could my mother and I file a civil suit against the establishment that over served him?
