I was jumped by like 6 or 7 women employees of the bar. They threw bottles at me Hit me with one of the bottles in my head while I was at the ground. scratched my face punched. Me pull my hair. My back and head hurts. I am depressed because of the scars on my face I don’t know if they would heal properly. I was able to point out only 2 of them and they got arrested. when I was at the ground I didn’t get to see the rest of the other women. I feel that the bar is responsable as well because it where there employee and they attacked me and I did not start the incident. I haven’t been to work because of the incident and i just want to know if I can get justice for this abuse that happened to me.
You certainly have the right to sue the assailants, as well as the bar. To prevail against the bar will require that you establish, for example, that the bar failed to timely prevent this. Best to look to retain an attorney. Good luck.

The case would require a lot more investigation in order to be able to evaluate. Doubtless there will be multiple versions of what happened. If there are convictions or guilty pleas, that could be used. One of the key issues will be whether of any of the assailants were over-served
It is a tough case against the bar because attacking someone is outside the scope of employment. There might be negligent hiring claims (also tough) and failure to intervene. Are there security cameras? If YES, did the police copy the video? That would be important in a civil case. If NO, a preservation letter should be sent ASAP.
