Man Stabbed Several Times in Fight at the View Nightclub

Attorney Commentary: In the second part of this article, stabbing victim lawyer Guy D'Andrea discusses lawsuits for people injured in nightclub stabbings.

A man was hospitalized with at least three stab wounds following a large brawl at the View Nightclub in Allentown on February 9.

Police said a man showed up at a hospital with three stab wounds at around 5 a.m. that Sunday. Police were responding to reports of a large fight at the club at 1101 Hamilton Street at the same time.

The View is inside of the building at this address and is advertised as an after-hours club.

A police investigation determined that people had been fighting throughout the building. A 36-year-old man was stabbed several times during this incident.

The man was hospitalized and expected to recover from his injuries.

The View has had problems with the city in the past. In 2017, the city almost closed the nightclub under the nuisance abatement law, but dropped the alleged violations after the club questioned whether the law was constitutional.

Legal Rights of Nightclub Stabbing Victims

Crime victim lawyer Guy D'Andrea represents stabbing victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Brian has some information to share on the legal rights of nightclub stabbing victims:

During a nightclub stabbing investigation, it’s important to ask if and how the stabbing could have been prevented. Nightclub owners have a legal duty to keep their properties secure and their patrons safe from preventable violence. After a nightclub stabbing, we should ask if the owner met this legal duty.

Some nightclub stabbings only happen because of negligence by the owner – such as failing to have adequate security standards. In cases of negligence, nightclub stabbing victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a nightclub stabbing, you can learn more about your legal rights in a free consultation with one of our experienced crime victim lawyers.
