Florida Man Awarded $5.5 Million Over Halloween Stripper Party Shooting
A Florida man had the worst Halloween ever when he was shot during a Halloween party in 2011, but after suing over poor security, he can buy all the trick-or-treat candy his heart desires.
The man, who was never identified, luckily hired the powerhouse law firm, Steinger, Greene & Feiner, who emerged victorious after being awarded $5.5 million by a jury following a 4-day trial last month.
The lawsuit was against the landlord, tenant and company who threw the 2011 party and accused them of being negligent for not providing proper security measures.
The party went down at a Miami Gardens strip mall, and featured stripper poles and tons of fun before gunfire rang out and ended the party. The victim was struck by two bullets, but luckily survived.
His lawyers, Michael Steinger and Michael Feiner, explain “The wounds were life altering, bullets shattered his elbow and more severely penetrated his spine.”
The firm says, “The bullet remained in the Plaintiff’s spinal cord for two years, until he underwent a risky surgery to have it successfully removed. However, he still suffers from many physical ailments as a result of his injuries.”
