Thank you for your question.
I'm very sorry to hear about this situation.
It is possible in Texas, under the Texas Dram Shop Act, to sue both the bar and the patron for the injuries your son received. Under the Texas Dram Shop Act, the bar is responsible if your son can establish "proof that: at the time the provision of alcohol occurred it was apparent to the provider that the individual being sold, served, or provided with an alcoholic beverage was obviously intoxicated to the extent that he presented a clear danger to himself and others; and the intoxication of the recipient of the alcoholic beverage was a proximate cause of the damages suffered.”
Your son's next move should be to contact a local personal injury
attorney to represent him in this case and file a claim against both the patron and the bar. The bar's insurance policy
on this matter will be much larger and would cover your son's damages if he can establish liability. There are many attorneys around Houston who will take cases such as this on a contingency arrangement. That means that your son would not have to pay any attorney's fees up front.
If you just type in "Houston Dram Shop Attorneys" into a google search, the results have many qualified attorneys who may be interested in your son's case.
