HOUSTON – A local establishment is being sued over a motorcyclist’s death two years ago in an alleged accident, per recent Harris County District Court records.
Gwendolyn Moore filed a lawsuit against Smoke Inn of Houston, Inc., doing business as On the Rox Sports Bar & Grill, on Feb. 7, accusing the business of contributing to the 2016 crash which killed her husband, Marcos Nava.
The defendant reportedly served Nava, a father of one, alcohol though it was aware of his intoxicated state.
Nava then left On the Rox on his Harley Davidson motorcycle. Court papers state that he was traveling southbound on Jones Road when he lost control of the motorcycle and struck the back of another vehicle.
The decedent suffered “catastrophic and fatal” injuries.
“At the time of his death, Marcos Nava’s BAC level was well in excess of the legal limit,” the original petition says.
Consequently, his widow seeks unspecified monetary damages and a jury trial.
She is represented by Jason P. Hoelscher, Bianca Calderon de Lachica, and Miranda J. Cook of the law firm Sico Hoelscher Harris & Braugh LLP in Corpus Christi.
