Legal Options Available To Victims of Restaurant Stabbings

Victim of a stabbing at a restaurant? Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea represents victims of violent crime in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has generously shared his knowledge of the legal options available to these victims and their families.

“Essentially, property owners are legally obligated to maintain the safety of all customers and employees on-site. In order to successfully protect their patrons from preventable crime, property owners must provide adequate security on their premises. This may include but is not limited to measures such as well-lit parking lots and security guards. Thus, when adequate security is not provided and someone is injured in a violent crime, such as a stabbing, the property owner may be held liable,” states Mr. Kent.

He continued: “But, a violent crime victim’s attorney must also be able to prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable in addition to a being caused by inadequate security. Therefore, if a restaurant owner knows about prior crime in the area but does not improve security measures, and then someone is injured in a stabbing, he or she may be held liable for the crime. Essentially, if a reasonably foreseeable crime injures or kills someone due to inadequate security, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.”

If you or someone you love has fallen victim to a restaurant stabbing, you can learn more about your legal options by reaching out to an experienced crime victim lawyer to discuss your case.
