A restaurant expert witness advises on safety policies with regards to physical altercations on restaurant premises. This case takes place in Rhode Island and involves a twenty-two-year-old man who entered a restaurant to pick up his take-out order. A fight broke out outside the restaurant between a delivery person and patrons who had just left the restaurant. The manager asked someone to call 911 before exiting and attempting to break up the fight. The victim waited inside. However, one of the combatants entered the restaurant and threw the victim’s food onto the floor. The victim grabbed the combatant’s arms in an attempt to diffuse the situation. The combatant and his companions then turned on the victim, striking him several times in the face and injuring him. The attack caused severe and permanent injury to his eye.
