Football Player Blinded in Assault
A former football player with the Nebraska Cornhuskers was awarded $2 million by a Hennepin County jury for injuries he suffered during an attack at a bar in the Minneapolis Warehouse District. Our client, 28, a high school all-American and a tight end with the national champion Cornhuskers from 1995 to 1998, lost the vision in his right eye after he and several friends were attacked outside of Banana Joe's.
"The management of this bar negligently exposed my client to a dangerous situation," said attorney Paul Downes. "The tragic result is that a tremendous young man was cut down at the peak of his athletic career."
