Texas Man Awarded Over $5 Million in Lawsuit Claiming Restaurant Overserved Him Alcohol

Daniel Rawls documented a claim in May, blaming La Fogata Mexican Grill, proprietor Lourdes Galindo, and an obscure barkeep of premises obligation, carelessness, and harms emerging from predictable criminal lead. The suit comes from a May 2019 episode where Rawls had been drinking vigorously at La Fogata prior to leaving and getting into a debate with Robert Henrickson, who had likewise been drinking in overabundance at the eatery, in the parking area. 

Rawls asserts "a lopsided parking garage" made him fall, and blames Galindo for neglecting to keep it clear of anything "that would represent a stumbling or falling peril to inebriated supporters." He likewise guarantees carelessness in the interest of La Fogata for not calling an emergency vehicle when he supported a "genuine and crippling" head injury subsequent to falling, just as his quarrel with Henrickson. 

Rawls claims Galindo didn't adequately prepare the obscure barkeep to decide when a client had enough to drink and shouldn't be served any longer. The Houston Chronicle noticed that Rawls has been captured twice, in May and February 2019, on a public inebriation charge. 

The court's decision in support of Rawls was important for a default judgment, which implied that Galindo didn't react or show up in court. 

La Fogata has 30 days to file an appeal for a new trial.
