SAN DIEGO, CALIFORNIA (July 10, 2019) – A bouncer for Firehouse was critically injured after a fight outside of the Pacific Beach bar and restaurant.
San Diego police are saying that the assault took place around 9:20 p.m. at firehouse which is located on 722 Grand Avenue. Four men tried to get into Firehouse through a side door.
The main bouncer told the men that they had to use the front entrance. One of the assailants picked up a pole from the metal crowd barrier and hit the bouncer over the head.
After that initial strike the suspects began fighting with other Firehouse security members and staff. Another bouncer sustained a broken nose from the fight.
The attackers fled and are still being sought by police. Anyone with information should call the San Diego Police at 619-531-2000.
Liability In Bar Assaults
Bars have a legal responsibility to provide adequate security and take measures to keep guests safe. According to the California Civil Code § 1714 subsection (a), “Everyone is responsible, not only for the result of his or her willful acts, but also for an injury occasioned to another by his or her want of ordinary care or skill in the management of his or her property or person, except so far as the latter has, willfully or by want of ordinary care, brought the injury upon himself or herself.”
If a worker is injured on the job they will typically be able to seek damages through the worker’s compensation system. According to the California Department of Industrial Relations Workers Compensation Guidebook, “If you get hurt on the job, your employer is required by law to pay for workers’ compensation benefits.” An injured worker may also be able to seek damages through a third party liability claim. A third party claim may be possible if any entity separate from a worker’s employer contributed to the accident.
A victim may be able to recover damages through a bodily injury claim. Damages may include compensation for lost wages, medical bills and pain and suffering. A premises liability attorney can examine all of the facts of your case and let you know what you options are. There are, however, statute of limitations associated with filing a claim, so it’s important to act quickly.
