A 24 year old employee at Tiger Woods' flagship restaurant passed away in a awful accident after being served alcohol at work and now, the famous golfer and his girlfriend Erica Herman are getting sued in a wrongful death case. Nicholas F. Immesberger crashed his auto while under the influence back in December of 2018 and his parents made a decision to hit Woods with a lawsuit.
Family attorney Spencer Kuvin said Tuesday that Florida law holds that when a business over-serves someone known to be addicted to alcohol, that business is responsible for what occurs.

Lawyers for the family of Nicholas Immesberger, who are suing Woods and Herman over Immesberger's death, are accusing Woods, Herman, or someone at Woods' restaurant of destroying video evidence. The family is alleging that after his shift that night, Immesberger was over-served by other staff at The Woods, and it was the responsibility of Woods and Herman to prevent that from happening.

"They knew about the crash that night, and shortly thereafter that video evidence was then destroyed", their attorney said.
During a press conference, Woods addressed the lawsuit against him, saying that 'We are all very sad that Nick passed away. "It was a awful night, a awful ending, and just - we feel bad for him and his entire family".
Immesberger's parents claim Woods and Herman knew he battled alcoholism, according to the suit, and that Woods "was directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management ... were not over-serving its employees/customers", TMZ reported.
