A California jury has awarded nearly $58 million to a 43-year-old house painter left with a massive part of his head missing after a security guard crushed his skull during a beating outside a Los Angeles-area bar.
"His skull is like a pie with 25% cut out of it," attorney Federico Sayre said at a news conference Monday.
Doctors had to removed part of Antonio Lopez Chaj's brain and skull after the April 2010 beating at La Barra Latina in Torrance. He can no longer speak, needs help walking and requires 24-hour care.
The guard was never charged as police said they lacked witnesses...
So make sure if you get beaten there are lots of witnesses!
