Successful claim after public house assault

Ellis Hass & Co recently succeeded in winning compensation for our client who was ‘glassed’ by a member of staff at a local Public House when he was watching a sports event on the large screen (advertised by the pub prior to the incident).

A band had been asked to perform at the same time and our client enquired with the singer when their set would finish, because the volume for the boxing event had been put on silent to let the band play. Shortly thereafter, and through no fault of our client, he was challenged by the Chef, and whilst involved in what our client considered to be nothing more than a discussion, the member of staff thrust a glass into our client’s face, causing serious scarring and potentially life threatening injuries, leading to the need for over 75 stitches to his face.

The brewery initially denied liability claiming ‘self defence’ and it was only after court proceedings were commenced that the Defendant decided to negotiate a settlement.
