McAleer Law Firm is pleased to announce a $225K judgment in favor of our client Robert Duffield, in the case of Duffield v. Chui.
Robert Duffield was severely injured in November 2007 when he was hit in the face by George Chui after both had attended a mixed martial arts match at Wild Bill’s in Duluth, GA. Duffield’s jaw was broken in the altercation, resulting in over $25,000 in medical costs.
In 2010, a Fulton County jury found for the defense, but the Georgia Court of Appeals ruled that the jury had been improperly charged to evaluate the case on negligence rather than battery.
In the retrial of the case, which began on March 17, Duffield was awarded $200,000 for his injuries plus another $25,000 in punitive damages.
The McAleer Law Firm specializes in various types of personal injury cases, worker’s compensation, and social security disability. We have a proven track record of results and every year we recover millions of dollars for our clients by using our experience and understanding of accident law.
