Can I Sue For Being Stabbed At A Laundromat?

Attorney contributor Aaron Blank represents victims of stabbings in civil lawsuits. Aaron has provided information on the legal options available to these victims and their family members:

Legally, all business owners must provide adequate security on his or her property in order to maintain the safety of customers and employees. Adequate security may include things like security cameras and well-lit parking lots. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security and someone is injured or killed on site, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the owner.

In addition to inadequate security, a victim’s lawyer must prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a history of criminal violence and the owner did not improve the security measures. Inadequate security and a reasonably foreseeable crime may allow victims of criminal violence to sue property owners.
