Legal Recourse for Victims and Families of Stabbings

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville works with victims and their families of violent crime in civil lawsuits. As an experienced stabbing victim attorney, Laurence has shared his knowledge on the different legal options available to victims of bar stabbings.

"Regardless of where you live, a bar owner is legally responsible for the safety and security of others on the property. They should provide a sufficient level of security to decrease the risk of violence, such as fights, stabbings, and shootings. Security cameras, hired security bouncers, and adequate lighting can help deter violent crime. Without the bar's preventative measures, crimes may occur, and they could be held liable for security neglect."

"Determining the facts of the incident is often overwhelming to victims and families of violent crimes like stabbings. The criminal justice system was not designed to provide appropriate compensation to victims or their families but instead to punish the perpetrators. Victims may be able to file a private lawsuit against the bar owner if they act negligently. If the bar or location had an issue with violence yet the bar owner failed to offer additional security for its patrons; they could be considered negligent. 

Victims or the families of those fatally stabbed are encouraged to seek the professional advice of an experienced stabbing victim attorney. The attorney can help gather evidence that a property owner failed to provide adequate security to prevent the foreseeable crime.
