Pittsburgh man says bar security broke his collarbone

State Court

By Scott Holland | Mar 17, 2020


PITTSBURGH — A Pittsburgh man has filed a lawsuit alleging he suffered serious injuries at the hands of bar security staff.

In a complaint filed Feb. 28 in the Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas, David Tesone sued Rattcorp, the owners of William Penn Tavern. Tesone said he was “acting and comporting himself in a mannerly, appropriate fashion” on Nov. 27 but was nonetheless ejected from the premises by security staff who “used excessive and/or injurious force” and, once outside, “suddenly, violently and without provocation” threw him to the ground.

Tesone said he suffered a broken collarbone, which required two surgeries, as well as chest, back, knee, emotional “and other severe and permanent” injuries. His complaint includes a count of negligence, in the context of vicarious liability, direct corporate negligence and civil battery.

In addition to a jury trial, Tesone seeks compensation for medical expenses, lost earnings as well as “past, present and future pain and suffering” as well as “for shock, fright, discomfort, mental anxiety, loss of well-being and the loss of enjoyment of life.”

Tesone is represented by Flaherty Fardo Rogel & Amick, of Pittsburgh
