Man Loses Eye Attempting to Break Up Bar Fight
A forty-seven-year-old Philadelphia man tragically lost his left eye when he was trying to break up a bar fight and was struck in the face by a patron. The altercation was between three patrons, all of whom were served excessive amounts of alcohol while they were visibly intoxicated, a clear violation of Pennsylvania law. The Princeton Tavern was notorious for over-serving alcohol to its patrons and it had violated Pennsylvania liquor laws at least ten times in the past. Prior to trial Kevin Marciano and Pat MacAvoy were able to obtain a favorable settlement against the bar and the drunk patrons involved in the fight.
