Man Suing Bar Near Oregon University over Freak Finger Injury

February 19, 2018

A man is suing a popular tavern near the University of Oregon, claiming a freak injury at the bar has left him unable to pursue “a host of attractive, lucrative careers” in music and medicine.

Winston Martin says he suffered severe cuts to his left hand when a Max’s Tavern bartender asked him to separate a pint glass from a metal drink shaker and the glass shattered. The suit says the bartender had served Martin at least six alcoholic drinks before asking him to help loosen the glass from the shaker.

Martin says he lost sensation in his left index finger and he only has regained minimal feeling. He is seeking $3.75 million.

An attorney representing the tavern’s owners declined to comment on the lawsuit.
