Tourists flock to South Florida for holiday celebrations, especially in the winter to escape the harsh cold. That’s what a 22-year-old college business major from Rhode Island did this past New Year’s Eve when he flew to Miami with friends to ring in the New Year.
But the reportedly unprovoked actions of an allegedly aggressive and negligent bouncer have left him permanently disabled.
After suffering a severe skull fracture as a result of the encounter, the man’s father said he was in a coma for three months and has suffered brain damage so severe, he is no longer able to care for himself. Now, his father has secured a $5 million settlement on behalf of the young man from the nightclub that employed the bouncer.
