Mandelbaum Barrett PC's Personal Injury Team Recently Helped an Injured Patron Hold a Careless Bar Accountable For an On-site Stabbing

February 11, 2019

Member Joe Peters and Associate Ethan Wells earned a major victory on behalf of a client who was stabbed in a New Brunswick, New Jersey bar. The client sustained multiple traumatic injuries to his leg, abdomen, pancreas, and spleen. Peters and Wells aggressively advocated for our client during the mediation and were able to prove that the bar in question had an obligation to provide security at its establishment in a reasonable manner. The bar also failed to successfully train and supervise its security personnel. Therefore, the bar was fully liable for plaintiff's injuries. The mediation ended when the defendant's agreed to compensate the plaintiff in full. This is just one of the many satisfying verdicts our personal injury attorneys have achieved for plaintiffs.
