$225,000 Eye Injury Following Nightclub Assault
In a case where a client was struck in the face with a glass bottle while enjoying a night out with friends, Curran Law Group, P.C. was able to secure a six figure settlement for the client. As a result of the assault, our client suffered a ruptured globe and required emergency medical care at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear Infirmary in Boston, Massachusetts. Our client continued to suffer with “floaters” in his vision which would come and go. Through investigation, it was discovered that the bar had violated local ordinances and other state regulations by overcrowding the premises and failing to have sufficient security on the premises. The defendant bar’s insurance carrier contested the both liability and damages and argued that the damage was not permanent. Our office arranged for our client to be examined by a highly regarded ophthalmologist, who provided a written opinion indicating that our client had sustained a permanent eye injury as a result of the assault. Shortly thereafter, through a series of negotiations, Attorney Curran was able to sure a six figure settlement for his client. As for the attacker, he was ultimately arrested and put in jail.
