Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced crime victim lawyer representing stabbing victims in New Jersey. Brian recently sat down with Legal Herald to answer the common question, "Can I sue for being stabbed at a casino?"
"Casino and nightclub owners have a responsibility to ensure their employees and patrons are safe from preventable danger. These businesses are more likely to be the site of violent crimes due to the consumption of alcohol. A standard of security measures needs to be maintained in order to reduce the risk of violent crime, such as stabbings and shootings. Casino and nightclub owners can use preventative measures such as trained security personnel, security cameras, and sufficient lighting to reduce the risks of these dangers. Nightclubs and casino patrons can fall victim to shootings and stabbings due to inadequate security and the owner's neglect."
"It is possible for casino stabbing victims and their families to file a civil lawsuit against the casino. If the area was prone to violence yet the owner failed to make security improvements, it could be seen as a foreseeable crime. Victims stabbed at a casino or nightclub should speak with an experienced crime victim lawyer to help them determine the best course of legal action."
