According to a lawsuit filed Monday in Palm Beach County, Mary Belowsky and Scott Duchene say the employees and management of The Woods over-served their son, Nicholas F. Immesberger, on December 10, 2018.

Representatives for Tiger Woods did not immediately respond to Fox News' request for comment.

Tiger Woods is being sued for allegedly allowing his Jupiter restaurant to over serve alcohol to a staffer, who later died in a drunk driving accident.

A police said Immesberger lost control of his vehicle on his way home and swerved across three lanes before going airborne and overturning.

"The employees and management at The Woods had direct knowledge that Immesberger had a habitual problem with alcohol", the lawsuit read.

The lawsuit, which reportedly seeks "in excess of" $15,000, claims that Immesberger was over-served for multiple hours following his shift at The Woods.

His parents said he had battled alcoholism and had known the famed golfer personally.

Immesberger is said to have drank alcohol at the restaurant for hours after finishing his shift that day, and was then allowed to go out to his vehicle to drive himself home.

According to the New York Daily News, Immesberger had a 0.28 BAC when he was killed in a crash back in December.

The lawsuit was filed in Palm Beach County, Florida.

The lawsuit states Immesberger drank alcohol at the restaurant for hours after finishing his shift on December 10, and was then allowed to go out to his auto to drive himself home. His blood alcohol level was.256 at the time of the fatal crash, more than three times the legal limit.

The lawsuit filed by attorneys Craig Goldenfarb and Spencer Kuvin seeks medical and funeral expenses as well as other 'appropriate damages'. Immesberger died at the scene.
