Can Bar Owners Be Liable For Stabbings On Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent at www.crimevictim.Attorney  represents victims of bar stabbings in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has generously shared his knowledge on the legal options open to these victims and their families.

“Commercial property owners must fulfill their legal duty of safeguarding their customers and employees. The first step is providing their patrons and employees with adequate security. This may include providing things like metal detectors, video cameras, and security guards. If a property owner does not maintain this level of security, then he or she may be liable if a violent crime like a stabbing occurs on the premises”, states Mr. Kent.

He continues: “But inadequate security on its own is not enough to bring a lawsuit against the property owner. The violent crime must be reasonably foreseeable for the victim to have a strong case. Essentially, if a bar has had a prior history of shootings and stabbings in the area and the owner chooses not to offer the adequate security to protect its customers, then they may be held liable for the victim’s injuries. To be clear, the victim must prove that the owner acted negligently by not offering adequate security and ultimately ignoring the reasonably foreseeable circumstances of violent crime to have a suit.”

If you or someone else you know has become a victim of a violent crime, you can reach out to an experienced attorney who specializes in crime victims to discuss your legal options.
