Philadelphia Law Firm Delivers Justice in $7 Million Settlement for Family of Slain Temple Graduate


Philadelphia, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 05/22/2015 -- Throughout Philadelphia and Bucks County, Pennsylvania, as well as New Jersey, individuals go to Saltz, Mongeluzzi, Barrett & Bendesky, P.C. for strategic, comprehensive legal representation. They primarily focus on matters of unjust personal injury, wrongful death, negligence and malpractice. Recently, the Philadelphia law firm delivered a $7 million settlement to the family of Kevin Kless, who was beaten to death in Philadelphia by two underage individuals who had been illegally served alcoholic beverages.

According to NBC Philadelphia, the $7 million settlement comes from the insurance policies of the two bars that allegedly served the underage individuals. Since both bars have since closed for their own reasons, the money is being withdrawn from their insurance policies. The case is considered the largest monetary settlement of its kind in Philadelphia's history.

When a premises serves liquor, they are tasked with the responsibility of abiding by all laws related to liquor control. They are responsible for their patrons as well as their actions if the patrons have been unlawfully served, whether they were underage or already visibly and/or severely intoxicated. The two establishments under fire were brought to justice by Saltz, Mongeluzzi, Barrett & Bendesky after sufficient evidence was provided to prove that they served the underage individuals "to the point of visible intoxication," according to NBC.

The firm filed a wrongful death suit, both against the two bars and the three individuals charged with the deadly assault, eventually bringing some justice for Kless' family. "There is no lawsuit that can ever give them back what they really want," said Robert J. Mongeluzzi, partner of Saltz, Mongeluzzi, Barrett & Bendesky. Regardless of the size of the settlement, they will never be able to get their son back.
