CONFIDENTIAL SETTLEMENT FOR YOUNG WOMAN INJURED IN BRAWL
Recently, a lovely 22-year old student and part-time telemarketer was socializing with friends at the bar of a popular bowling alley, when a fight broke out, and she and a friend were assaulted. In the melee, her two front teeth got knocked out by another patron swinging a pool stick. Despite the heavy turnout that night because of a special promotion, we were able to prove that the bowling alley failed to provide security that responded to the altercation when it broke out, and video cameras installed to monitor such activity were either disabled and unmonitored.
Thanks to careful investigation and preparation, the insurance company for the bowling alley agreed to a settlement providing substantial and satisfying compensation to our client for her injuries, without even the need to file a lawsuit.
