Legal Options For Victims Stabbed at a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Phil Edwards is an experienced violent crimes lawyer. Phil has represented victims wounded in restaurant stabbings and helps them determine their legal options. Phil has provided some of his insight below.

“Restaurants, just like other commercial properties, have a legal obligation to provide a safe environment for their customers. Unfortunately, crimes are sometimes committed on the property that results in customers being harmed. Property owners should implement a certain level of safeguards, such as security cameras and proper lighting, to prevent such crime from occurring. If restaurant owners fail to provide adequate safety measures, they may be deemed negligent and could be held liable for the violent crimes that take place on their property.”

“A property owner may be deemed negligent in a civil lawsuit if the crime was found to be reasonably foreseeable. One instance of a foreseeable crime would be if the crime rate in the area or at the establishment has increased recently, but the property owner failed to increase its security. Victims’ families should be aware  that they may have grounds for a lawsuit and could even receive compensation for damages if the property owner is deemed liable and negligent.”
