The Ward Family

The Ward Family

In 2010, Gary Ward was hit by a drunk driver who had been over-served at a local bar. However, he was unable to receive a settlement to cover his long term medical costs because the bar did not carry liability insurance. In 2015, Gary’s wife Angela testified for Chris Turner’s HB409, which would require bars and restaurants to carry liability insurance. We spoke to the Ward family before their testimony about how the bill could have impacted their lives.
