Can Victims of Bar Stabbing Sue a Bar?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is a stabbing victim lawyer who fights for justice for victims of violent crime through civil lawsuits. We recently discussed how victims can win a lawsuit against a negligent bar for a bar stabbing. 

"Bar property owners are bound by laws to ensure the safety of all of their patrons and bar staff. Their legal duty is to protect their patrons from preventable violence through a series of security measures, both on and around the bar's property. While these measures usually include video surveillance and ample lighting, there are others. A bouncer is responsible for diffusing a fight before it breaks out or becomes out of control, leading to a stabbing or shooting." 

"If a victim's attorney can prove the bar security failed to uphold their commitment to their safety, they could have reason to pursue a lawsuit. It is important to know if the bar owner provided adequate security. However, they will also need to prove that the crime was foreseeable and therefore preventable. If the owner was aware of previous violence in or around the bar area but chose not to increase security, they could be deemed negligent."

"Negligent security cases against a bar owner tend to be complex. A victim should discuss their potential case with an experienced stabbing victim lawyer."
