The family's civil complaint says Immesberger had a blood alcohol level of.256, more than three times the legal limit.
Immesberger finished his shift on December 10, but stayed at The Woods to drink at the restaurant, and was allegedly served to the point of "severe intoxication" before being sent out to his vehicle, according to the report.
Per reports from United States media the lawsuit, which was brought forward by the Immesberger family, contends that employees of The Woods were aware that the bartender was a "habitual drunkard" and that friends had asked employees to not serve Immesberger alcohol. It is alleged that Immesberger sat and drank at the bar for three hours after his shift before trying to drive home.
"We're all very sad that Nick passed away". Immesberger died at approximately 6pm local time on December 10, around three hours after finishing his shift.
Pompeo crashes Brussels meeting of European Union diplomats for Iran talks
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo held talks in Brussels with the main European powers on the crisis. According to the agency, he has departed from Washington and is heading to Europe.
Because he is owner of the restaurant, the lawsuit argues Woods is "directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management" were not over-serving its employees and customers and that he is "individually liable in this action because he individually participated in the serving of alcohol to Immesberger" with "personal knowledge" that he had a drinking problem.
The family claims Woods and Herman knew Immesberger had a habitual problem with alcohol but allowed him to be served anyway. The family is also saying that the restaurant destroyed the surveillance footage of Immesberger at the bar. TMZ reported Monday that the victim - identified as Nicholas Immesberger - was battling alcoholism, according to his parents. 'It was a bad, awful night, a bad ending'.
He lost control of the vehicle around 6pm, swerving across three lanes before his auto flew through the air and crashed into the grass along Federal Highway in Port Salerno, according to the Palm Beach Post. The suit alleges that the employees and management at The Woods promoted drinking by employees. Immesberger died at the scene.
