Does a person who was jumped by three people and held down by a fourth upon entering the bar have a case? 2 Answers as of May 15, 2014

The subject engaged in pleasantries with the three people and continued on to talk with a person unrelated to the incident. During this conversation, the subject was punched down to the floor at which the time the other two engaged by punching and kicking the subject and stomping on her glasses while she was held down by the fourth person so the other three could continue the beating. The bartender did not call 911. There was no bouncer. There are security cameras in the bar. Police were called when the subject made it home safely. Subject was taken to emergency the next day and has lost 4 days of work. The bar has a history of violent bar fights, does not routinely employ security and only hires female bartenders. The bar serves drinks in glasses and beer bottles. The bar is known for not cutting off people who are obviously intoxicated.

You would possibly have an action against the antagonists and the business. You should see a personal injury attorney. You are lucky you were not seriously hurt.

Absolutely. You have a case against the establishment and those who were engaged in the beating.
