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.

Tiger Woods is being sued by the family of a Florida man who died after he was allegedly over-served at Woods' restaurant and died in a drunk driving accident, according to TMZ.

The suit alleges Immesberger drank alcohol at The Woods restaurant after his shift before driving on Federal Highway in Martin County.

At the time of his death Immesberger had a blood alcohol level of.256, which is more than three times the legal limit of below.08 in Florida.

According to the lawsuit, "The employees and management at The Woods had direct knowledge that Immesberger had a habitual problem with alcohol", and knew that he attended Alcoholics Anonymous meetings to try treating his disease.

Tiger Woods is the target of a new lawsuit claiming the golf star allowed his Florida restaurant to over-serve alcohol to an employee who struggled with alcoholism, which led to his death. The restaurant is said to be primarily run by Woods' girlfriend, Erica Herman. The suit, filed in Florida, claims Immesberger was overserved at the restaurant before getting into his vehicle to drive home.

Researchers suggested these faults were evidence of lunar tectonics, although it was unclear how recent this activity was. Astronauts placed five different seismometers during the subsequent Apollo missions from Apollo 11 to Apollo 16.

Nicholas Immesberger, 24, is the bartender's names.

Woods snapped an 11-year major win drought by winning the Masters last month and seeks his 16th career major title this week. Woods, the family said, is "directly responsible for ensuring that his employees and management. were not over-serving its employees/customers".

The 43-year-old Woods, who is preparing to play in the PGA Championship, has not yet commented on the lawsuit.

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

A copy of a citation obtained by DailyMail.com shows Immesberger had been cited for speeding and failure to produce a drivers license on December 4, 2008, just six days before he died.
