Legal Options of Victims Stabbed at a Deli

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville, an experienced violent crimes lawyer, regularly works with victims of violent crimes in civil court cases. Below, Laurence provides insight into the legal options of victims stabbed at a deli and how to begin a civil lawsuit.

"Deli owners have a legal duty to provide a safe and secure environment on and around their property. Deli owners must implement security measures to safeguard employees and patrons against violent crimes. An example of a safeguard is cameras, lighting, guards, and more. In violent stabbing cases, a property owner may be deemed liable in a court case if someone is hurt."

"In cases of stabbings, where the property owner did not implement adequate security, they may be deemed liable. A property owner may be considered liable if the crime is foreseeable and they are found negligent. An example of a foreseeable crime is if crime rates in the area increased, but the owner did not put in new safeguards. If a victim's attorney can prove a crime was foreseeable and the owner was negligent, then the victim has grounds for a civil lawsuit and may receive compensation."'
