A 43-year-old house painter so badly brain damaged that he cant speak has been awarded $58 million by a jury after a beating at a bar left him with half his skull permanently bashed in.
Chaj was attacked at a mid-Wilshire bar after trying to intercede in an attack by a bartender and security guard on two relatives who were with him.
Lawyers said an unlicensed, untrained security guard beat Chaj with a baton, kicked him in the head eight times and smashed his skull against pavement four times.

One of the relatives got into a dispute with the bartender-manager who came after him with brass knuckles, Sayre said. Quintanilla, who was working for DGSP Security and Patrol Services, began kicking and beating members of the group.
Chaj tried to intervene and said, Stop beating my nephews. At that point, Sayre said, the guard beat Chaj into unconsciousness. Part of his skull was gone when he reached the hospital.
They saved his life but he has significant brain damage, Sayre said. He cant speak and he requires 24-hour nursing care.
seems very insignificant in my opinion.
He lived didn’t he? Thank goodness he didn’t use a weapon to save himself from death. Seeing as he didn’t die and all.
Thankfully the perpetrators got away without being caught or shot or anything. The victim should be thankful he wasn’t seriously head injured.
I can’t even look at that photo... horrible.
My God, why the hell are people so angry these days? Whatever happened to a good old fashioned fist fight that ends when one of them decides not to get back up? Nowadays people want to kill you. Evil.
Man's inhumanity to man.
My advise is don’t go into LA bars looking for trouble...You’ll be amazed how fast ya find it.
“Whatever happened to a good old fashioned fist fight that ends when one of them decides not to get back up?”
That was the old American culture. This is the new culture, the culture of Barra Latina. You know, the one that the GOPe and the Democrats are eager to give amnesty to.
I just wonder, if they are not in this country legally, will this little dust-up delay their acquiring American citizenship? Because we certainly wouldn't want for THAT to happen.
This guy was an illegal immigrant, the bouncer, who has disappeared (back to Mexico?), was probably illegal. The security company probably has zero money (one source on the net says 400k annual revenue, before paying employees and expenses). Will this guy pay for his medical expenses? (no). Will he pay for court costs? (no).
Immigration is good for our country!
I would advise anyone to shoot someone that is hitting you in the head.
Hmmm, 4 times head was smashed against pavement. Considerable damage done. George Zimmerman’s head bashed onto sidewalk pavement, totally insignificant.
Immigrants, doing the beating Americans will not do.
Mark Twain once dropped half a watermelon on his little brother’s head from the second floor of the newspaper office where he was a type setter.
When he came home that night his little brother was laying in ambush and hit him in the head with such a rock his head swelled so that “For a time I had to wear two hats.”
This poor fellow can get by with half a hat.
That was the ethics taught in old Western Cowboy movies. Those guys would be pansies by today's standards.........
George Zimmerman does not look like this.
Because Zimmerman had a gun.
