$396,000 judgment for civil assault victim

In this case our client was a young woman who, through no fault of her own, was brutally assaulted outside of a bar one evening.  Our client suffered severe injuries, which required surgery and implantation of hardware – which is permanent.

We proceeded to bring a lawsuit against the owner of the bar where the incident happened, as well as the individuals responsible for the assault.  The matter against the bar owner was settled after extensive discovery for a confidential amount.  As against the individuals, following  a hearing a judge issued a default judgment just under $400,000.

If you have suffered a significant injury feel free to give us a call, we are happy to help.
