Hunting Accident

On December 8, 2007, our client, a fit and active 31- year old Columbia University graduate, was the victim of an incident that would forever change his life. Having been invited to participate in a weekend of duck and pheasant hunting at a California Ranch in by a college classmate and co-owner of the ranch with his father, our client boarded a plane to California for what he expected would be an enjoyable weekend. What followed, however, was a physical and emotional nightmare for this young man that will continue forevermore into the future.

It was during a hunting excursion at the Ranch in the afternoon of December 8, 2007, when our client was shot by an inebriated and drug-impaired guest of the ranch owners from a range of approximately five feet. The blast of this guest’s 20-gauge shotgun nearly blew our client’s foot off. The guest, who was and, upon information and belief, remains a long-time friend of the owners of the ranch that had been invited to the hunting weekend by them, was a known abuser of alcohol and drugs. The ranch owners compounded this problem by plying him with alcohol throughout the day of the subject hunting excursion.


Marc S. Albert STARTED AN ACTION ON MR. BIASE’S BEHALF IN SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA. AFTER SEVERAL YEARS OF LITIGATION, A MEDIATION WAS HELD BY AND BETWEEN THE PARTIES AND A CONFIDENTIAL SEVEN FIGURE SETTLEMENT WAS ULTIMATELY AGREED TO.


The ranch owners started serving alcohol early in the morning, furnishing this guest and others with cognac- spiked coffee in lieu of breakfast. later, they would give a case-and-a-half of beer to their guest, who was already highly-intoxicated by this time, to take with him on the afternoon excursion. Despite his obvious intoxication and knowledge that their guest had also smoked marijuana prior to the afternoon hunt, the ranch owners gave him the rifle that they had been storing for him and provided him with ammunition with which to shoot. Shortly after the excursion began, our client was shot by the guest in the right lower leg from a mere five feet away. Our client’s leg, which was nearly lost in the shooting, was ultimately saved through multiple surgeries. However, he sustained a permanently disability in the incident, was relegated to using a cane and will be forever unable to perform many of the activities to which he had become accustomed prior to the incident.
