GRETNA – A Jefferson Parish man is suing a local bar after he was allegedly knocked out by an attacker in the parking lot of a bar.
Michael Mayeux filed suit against Troy Bergeron, Wenz, Inc., The Mill and their insurers in the 24th Judicial District Court.
Mayeux claims he was a customer at The Mill when he was attacked by Bergeron and ordered by the bar’s staff to leave the premises. The plaintiff claims that as he was leaving the premises and walking to his car in the parking lot Bergeron again attacked him and knocked him unconscious. Mayeux asserts that it was the responsibility of the owners of The Mill and its employees that he remain safe while on their premises. The plaintiff claims that due to the attack he had to be transported by ambulance to a local hospital and suffered severe injuries including cuts, strains, sprains, a brain injury and subsequent severe and permanent headaches.
The defendant, The Mill, under Louisiana law, is accused of being legally liable for acts perpetrated on its customers.
The defendant, Troy Bergeron, is accused of assault.
An unspecified amount in damages is sought for medical care, medicine costs, cost of hospitalization, lost wages, property damages, pain and suffering, permanent disability, emotional upset and distress and psychological problems including shock.
Mayeux is represented by attorney Lawrence J. McGrath, II of New Orleans.
The case has been assigned to Division F Judge Patrick J. McCabe.
Case no. 721-572.
