Bars hire bouncers for a variety of reasons. They include: to make sure underage drinkers don’t come in; to help out other staff members with various tasks; and to generally make sure the bar is a safe environment. Despite their reputation as sometimes being overly aggressive and confrontational, intoxicated patrons are not exactly the easiest people in the world to deal with. That being said, part of keeping a bar as a safe environment is staying under control while dealing with people who may be breaking the rules. Getting a reputation as an unnecessarily aggressive bouncer might be bad for business. Actually being an unnecessarily aggressive bouncer could lead to customers getting hurt. In such a situation, it may be wise to contact an expert personal injury attorney at 617-787-3700.
Bouncers from Kansas City, Missouri, at the Whiskey Tango Bar are experiencing heat right now after allegedly handcuffing two sisters to a wall after mistakenly thinking that the women used a counterfeit $50 bill. The suit alleges that the women were confronted by multiple bouncers wearing masks and camouflage, despite arriving at the bar over 90 minutes after the bill was used. The women were then apparently handcuffed to a wall in the bar after denying any responsibility.
Nick Hinrichs of the Hinrichs Lawfirm in Kansas City, Missouri, was able to secure a $1 million settlement for the two women. Mr. Hinrichs called the ordeal a “nightmare” for the sisters.
