"All patrons of a business are entitled to assume proper safety measures are put in place to assure a safe environment. If a business owner has not implemented proper safety precautions such as proper lighting and security cameras, the owner can be found negligent in the court of law. Negligence is determined if the crime is found to be reasonably foreseeable. An instance of a foreseeable crime could be if crime rates have risen in the area."
"If you or someone you love has been injured on a business owner's property, the owner can be held liable, and it is in your best interest to hire an experienced attorney to determine your legal options. Victims of stabbings should be aware that if a business owner is found negligent, they could receive financial compensation for the damages endured."
