Legal Options of Victims Stabbed Inside a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is an experienced violent crimes attorney. He has represented victims stabbed in restaurants and helped them determine their legal options. Below, Kevin has provided some of his insight.

"Restaurants, like commercial property, have a legal duty to provide a safe environment for their patrons and staff. Unfortunately, there are often crimes committed at the restaurant that results in the harming of patrons. Property owners should maintain a certain level of safeguards, which can include security cameras and strong lighting in order to prevent crimes from occurring. However, if the restaurant owner fails to provide an adequate level of safety, they may be deemed negligent and even held liable for the violent crimes that occur on their property."

"A property owner could even be considered negligent in a civil lawsuit for a violent crime if the court can find the crime to be reasonably foreseeable. One example of a reasonably foreseeable crime could include if the crime rates in the area were on the rise, but the property owner failed to increase their property's security. Victims and their families should know they could have grounds for a civil lawsuit and possibly be entitled to compensation for damages in the event that the property owner is deemed liable and negligent."
