"This verdict is a reminder that businesses are responsible for the actions of their employees and must provide a safe environment for patrons."
LAKELAND, FL, March 11, 2023 /24-7PressRelease/ -- On September 15, 2021, attorneys C. Garrett Gaa, Esq. and John Mark Hundhausen Esq., of Dismuke Law, obtained a jury verdict of $489,123.20 for a man who was senselessly beaten by bouncers at a bar and nightclub venue in Tampa, Florida.
The lawsuit was filed against Dallas Bull 301, LLC, the operator of the venue, after a fight broke out during a concert held on May 11, 2018. While bouncers attempted to de-escalate the situation, they mistook Mr. Morris, an innocent man who came to the venue with his family, for one of the individuals involved in the fight.
The bouncers then extracted Mr. Morris and his son from the crowd and forced them to exit the venue. In the chaos that ensued, Mr. Morris was slammed against a wall, thrown to the ground, and struck multiple times by the venue's bouncers.
Following the incident, Mr. Morris enlisted the legal counsel of Dismuke Law, known to Floridians as 1-800-ASK-DAVE, to help him pursue compensation for the injuries and damages he suffered.
Dallas Bull 301, LLC initially defended against Mr. Morris' suit and denied responsibility, but eventually, the company abandoned its defenses and declined to challenge Mr. Morris' allegations. As a result, Dismuke Law was able to secure a hefty verdict for the plaintiff.
This verdict is a reminder that businesses are responsible for the actions of their employees and must provide a safe environment for patrons. When local establishments fail to take their responsibilities seriously, they can be held accountable for the harm and financial losses caused to their customers.
