Jury Awards $160.5 Million for Nightclub Brain Injury
A man who suffered a traumatic brain injury some few years back recently won a damages lawsuit against the company running the night club where he sustained his severe injuries.
Night Club Security Violence
The case stemmed from an incident in 2012 when the manager and security men of the defendant night club attacked the plaintiff even after he had already paid his $10,000 bill. The defendant’s personnel reportedly forced the plaintiff into a security room where they shoved him to the ground and hit his head several times against the concrete floor with such force that caused the plaintiff’s severe injuries.
Injuries Arising from Night Club Violence
Immediately after his ordeal, the plaintiff said that he became disoriented and was taken to a nearby hospital for medical attention. The plaintiff was found to be suffering from a concussion, head swelling, a bruised eye, and a sore neck, arms and knees. A neurosurgeon diagnosed him with a traumatic brain injury as the plaintiff continued to suffer with:
- Difficulty in walking
- Difficulty in concentrating
The plaintiff was a successful hedge fund manager prior to the attack and his lawsuit claimed that his traumatic brain injury caused his hedge fund to shut down and prevent him from being employed in his usual field of work.
Traumatic brain injury often brings serious physical, mental, and psychological issues. If you or someone you know has suffered head injuries due to someone else’s negligent or reckless behavior, your immediate concern is recovering all the huge medical expenses for past and ongoing treatment. Talk to an experienced personal injury attorney immediately about your situation and get legal advice on your next steps.
Filing a Lawsuit for Traumatic Brain Injury
Claiming compensation for traumatic brain injury can be complicated. The injured party must be able to act swiftly in order to preserve evidence of the incident such as video footage that may be under the control of the negligent party. The expert testimony of a brain specialist will also be crucial for establishing the cause of the brain injury and the devastating results on the plaintiff’s daily activities and quality of life.
A skilled and experienced attorney can help by promptly serving notice to the other party to preserve video footage covering the date of the incident and engage a qualified brain neurosurgeon to serve as the plaintiff’s expert witness.
