HOUSTON – AMF Bowling Centers, Inc. faces legal action following the April 2016 death of a customer from injuries sustained in a single-vehicle accident.
Michigan resident Christopher Barden, individually and representing the estate of Anthony Barden, filed a wrongful death lawsuit in the Harris County 334th District Court on Aug. 7.
According to the original petition, AMF Willow Lanes in northwest Houston served Anthony Barden alcoholic beverages between the evening of Apr. 22, 2016 and early morning hours of Apr. 23, 2016.
The decedent left the business “in an obviously intoxicated state” and was struck by a vehicle while walking northbound on the Tomball Parkway service road, the complaint says.
Christopher Barden asserts his son suffered injuries that ultimately resulted in his death.
AMF is faulted for allowing the younger Barden to continue consuming alcohol though its employees knew he was intoxicated.
Consequently, the plaintiff seeks more than $1 million in damages.
He is represented by attorneys Keith C. Purdue, E. Michael Grossman, and Greg W. Turman of the Grossman Law Offices, P.C. in Dallas.
