Which Macon Bar Injured a Patron by Juggling Glasses?

The hospital is the last place you want to end up after a night at the bar, but for one of our clients, that is exactly what happened last year.

When you’ve been hurt at work, a lot of people believe they should just let their employer handle the medical treatment.
