Night Club Amateur Fight Night Injury Lawyers
“Fight Night,” “Foxy Boxing,” “Patron Boxing,” “Catfight Night,” and other amateur fight events held at night clubs and bars may sound entertaining and fun. However, these events can be very dangerous for participants. When bar owners do not take the proper precautions to ensure these events are conducted safely, they may be liable for any injuries that result. If you were enticed to participate in an amateur fight night in the state of Georgia or anywhere in the United States, you need aggressive representation to help you recover compensation for your injuries caused by the bar’s negligence. The personal injury attorneys at Stemberger & Cummins, P.C. have experience in unlicensed boxing match cases, and will work to make sure you receive justice.
Bars Profit from Unsanctioned Fighting
Many amateur fight nights are promoted by bars and strip clubs in order to bring in crowds and sell drinks. Owners make money from crowds of patrons, while putting participants at serious risk of injury.
Bars may subject fighters to hazardous conditions, such as:
*Wet and slippery fighting surfaces. (One strip club actually has fighters battling it out in 8 inches of water.)
*Unsafe rings made from improper materials and at unsafe heights.
*A lack of protective gear such as proper boxing gloves and headgear.
* Failure to control other patrons and prevent them from injuring participants.
* Employing unqualified and untrained referees.
These hazards often result in slip and fall injuries, head and neck injuries, back injuries, concussions, or even death.
Amateur Fight Nights Are Dangerous for Overmatched Fighters
While you may have volunteered to participate in these fights, and even signed a waiver, that does not mean you are unable to sue the bar owner and manager. Bars and night clubs have a legal obligation to provide safe premises and to ensure that they have taken all reasonable precautions to minimize the risk of injury while you are on their property. Night clubs don’t always take the time to match up fighters of equal skill or size; instead, they may be pitting novices against more experienced or physically domineering opponents. If bars do not establish clear rules for the fights, ensure that fights are safely supervised, keep intoxicated fighters from getting in the ring, or properly explain the risks you’re taking by participating in a novice fight, you may be owed money for your injuries when you get hurt.
