Legal Options For Victims Stabbed At A Bar

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville works with victims of violent crimes in civil suits. In an interview with Laurence, he provided the below commentary to help victims determine whether they can sue a property owner for being stabbed.

When asked about property owners’ legal responsibilities, Laurence replied, “property and business owners have a legal responsibility to uphold the safety of their customers. They must provide security, whether it be video surveillance, strong lighting on their property, or body guards.” He continued, “if property owners do not take ample security measures, they can be held negligent in court.”

Laurence provided more in-depth insight into the legal options of a victim of violent crimes by saying, “the first step would be to secure a crime victim attorney’s services. If the victim’s lawyer can prove, the crime was reasonably foreseeable when on an owner’s property, during a stabbing, without adequate security by an owner who knew about previous criminal activity. In that case, the victim may have a claim.”
