Can I Sue for Being Stabbed in a Nightclub?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan works with stabbing victims in private civil lawsuits. Marc provided the following commentary to help victims in determining if they can sue for being stabbed in a nightclub.

"Nightclub and bar owners have a legal responsibility to abide by premises liability laws ensuring the safety of their employees and patrons. Some types of security measures that might suffice could include nightclub security guards, video monitoring surveillance, and adequate lighting in their parking lots. These efforts are to lessen the chance of violent crimes from happening on the property. However, if sufficient security precautions are not taken seriously by the nightclub owners, they may be deemed negligent in a lawsuit."

"Nightclubs that have a history of violence or are located in an area where crime is on the rise have an obligation to increase their safety in order to reduce the chance of preventable crime. Failure to do this could lead a nightclub owner to be found negligent and ultimately liable for foreseeable crimes. By securing the services of a stabbing victim attorney, the victim and their family can file a lawsuit against the negligent nightclub."
