Tiger Woods, Erica Herman Wrongful Death Lawsuit: How Rich Is The Golfer?

Tiger Woods is being sued for allegedly allowing his Jupiter restaurant to over serve alcohol to a staffer, who later died in a drunk driving accident.

Tiger Woods, his girlfriend, and his restaurant have been named in a wrongful death suit, following the death of a bartender who worked at the 15-time major champion's restaurant in Florida.

The lawsuit contends that Herman, the restaurant's general manager, "personally knew Immesberger, specifically recruited him to work at The Woods and was well aware of Immesberger's habitual abuse of alcohol". It also claims negligence, saying they "ignored Immesberger's disease, they fueled it by over-serving him alcohol to the point of severe intoxication and then sending him out to his vehicle to drive home". He had an estimated blood alcohol level of 0.256, over three times Florida's legal limit.

The lawsuit comes just weeks after the 43-year-old golfer completed one of the greatest comebacks in sports history, winning The Masters after a lost decade of sex scandal, back injuries and drug addiction. We have evidence to show that that videotape, showing Nick at the bar that night after he got off at 3 p.m., drinking for three hours at the bar, was destroyed shortly after the crash had occurred. It is unclear if Woods or Herman were at the restaurant on December 10 after they had returned home from a trip to Australia on the night of December 7.

In the lawsuit, the family claimed that Woods, his girlfriend and his restaurant company should have prevented the man from drinking too much and driving to his death. "It was a awful night, a awful ending, and we feel bad for him and his entire family". Woods, the family said, is "directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management. were not over-serving its employees/customers".

Spencer Kuvin, one of the lawyers for Immesberger's family, spoke to ESPN about video footage of Immesberger drinking at the bar, which they believe the restaurant destroyed.

Tiger Woods of the United States looks on during a practice round prior to the 2019 PGA Championship at the Bethpage Black course on May 13, 2019 in Bethpage, New York.

What did Woods say?

The lawsuit also accuses The Woods of encouraging drinking on the job and claims that Immesberger was driven home on several occasions after he was "served so much alcohol that he was unable to function properly".
