CHICAGO — A customer is suing a Chicago bar, alleging one of the bar's security guards accidentally shot him in the leg.
Maximilliano Mancera filed a complaint April 6, in Cook County Circuit Court against Danielito Valentin and 1770 West Greenleaf Corporation, doing business as Gallaghers, specifically alleging they failed to exercise ordinary care in the maintenance and operation of firearm.
According to the complaint, in March 2011, Mancera was hurt when a security guard's weapon fired, and a round from the firearm allegedly struck Mancera in the leg at the Gallaghers at Greenleaf and Clark in Chicago. The plaintiff alleged the defendants failed to properly secure the firearm's holster and failed to properly engage firearm's safety lock to prevent accidental discharge.
Mancera requests a trial by jury and seeks damages in excess of court's jurisdictional limits. He is represented by Alexander Memmen of The Memmen Law Firm, of Chicago.
