The wrongful death lawsuit filed by the parents of 24-year-old Nicolas Immesberger says his blood-alcohol limit was more than three times the legal limit when he crashed his Corvette after leaving The Woods bar and restaurant in Jupiter, Fla., on December 10, NBC reports.

According to the lawsuit, Immesberger struggled with alcohol abuse.

Immesberger had a blood-alcohol level of.256, almost three times the legal limit of.08, at the time of his death, per CBS News. The lawsuit contends that employees at The Woods were aware that one month prior to his fatal crash he had crashed another vehicle while driving home and that one of Immesberger's friends had told employees at The Woods to stop serving the 24-year-old alcohol. He was allegedly permitted to drive home following three hours of drinking at The Woods after his shift at the restaurant concluded.

"Well, we're all very sad that Nick passed away", said the golfer.

Attorney Craig Goldenfarb listed Herman as the general manager of the bar and noted she "set the tone for the culture in that bar".

The attorneys representing Immesberger's parents Tuesday in a press conference claimed video footage of Immesberger drinking for three hours on December 10 has been "destroyed by the Woods".

It also claims that the restaurant's owners, management and employees were all aware of Immesberger's alcoholism but ignored his "disease" when they over-served him drinks.

Kuvin said there had been surveillance footage of Immesberger drinking extensively on the night of the crash, but claims that the restaurant destroyed it.

Immesberger also had been involved in another alcohol-related crash in November, the suit adds. He also cited a state law that holds the establishment responsible if it "knowingly serves a person habitually addicted to the use of any or all alcoholic beverage".

TMZ reports the parents believe Woods and Herman are at fault, saying the pair knew Immesberger had a drinking problem, but let him get served alcohol anyway. The suit alleges that the employees and management at The Woods promoted drinking by employees.

At a Tuesday press conference to discuss his upcoming turn in the US PGA Championship at Bethpage Black in Long Island, New York, Woods commented briefly on the matter. "It was a awful night, a bad ending".

The lawsuit was seeking "in excess of" $15,000, USA Today reported.
