$970,000 SETTLEMENT

Bouncer beatdown causing a subdural hematoma. A young student was in a popular local bar during "underage night". Something happened inside the bar that caused our client to be ushered out. While outside of the bar, a security guard hit our client in the head with such force as to knock him unconscious. He was taken to the hospital where he spent several days before releasing him. A few days later, he returned to the hospital.

Our attorneys walked out twice during the mediation, because of the ridiculously low offers the insurance company was presented to settle the case. 

Our client had returned to his country before the mediation. We had him on the telephone and text relaying the discussions and the offers to him. In the end, he was very happy with his settlement offer. 

We have handled several cases in the past couple of years where security guards, doormen and women, and bouncers, have used negligent excessive force on patrons, causing head, eye, back, neck, and arm damage, and even permanent scarring. 

If you are the victim of excessive force by a security guard, bouncer or doorperson, call our offices at 805-962-4944.
