GALVESTON – A Texas man is seeking monetary damages after allegedly suffering injuries in a motorcycle accident.
The driver of the motorcycle was allegedly drunk after being sold alcohol at a pair of nightclubs owned by ADA Investments of Dickinson and A&D Investments, which are listed as the defendants in the suit filed in the Galveston County District Court.
The plaintiff in the case is Jarrell Bryant and the suit was filed by his attorney David Romagosa of Houston on June 2.
The nightclubs named in the suit are the Heartbreakers/The Club, located in Dickinson, and Jackie’s Brickhouse, located in Kemah, which are owned by the defendants.
Both establishments are claimed to have sold alcoholic beverages to Eric McDougle, who was allegedly intoxicated, the complaint said.
The complaint said that "Eric McDougle was obviously intoxicated to the extent that Eric McDougle presented a clear danger to himself and to other persons at Heartbreakers and Jackie.’’
The complaint said that after leaving Heartbreakers the night of Sept. 30, 2016, or the early morning of Oct. 1, McDougle drove his motorcycle to Jackie’s.
"McDougle was not able to safely ride his motorcycle due to his intoxication and caused an accident with Jarrell Bryant," the complaint said.
Bryant had a leg amputated and the complaint said the plaintiff has not recovered and has numerous other injuries which are permanent in nature. The complaint said Bryant suffered physical pain and mental anguish and likely will suffer in the future.
Bryant is seeking damages from the defendants and pre- and post-judgment interest.
