Legal Options for Victims Stabbed in a Bar

Attorney Marc Lehan has years of experience as a criminal and civil defense lawyer. In an interview, Lehan offers some advice encouraging all stabbing victims to hire a stabbing victim attorney.

"All bar and lounge owners have a legal obligation to provide a safe environment for patrons on their property. It is not enough to only protect their property; they must implement safety measures to protect those within it. Adequate safety measures would include installing safety cameras, implementing security checks, and properly training staff. If a business owner fails to implement sufficient safety regulations, they could be held liable for injuries endured on their property."

"A bar owner could be held liable for injuries if the crime occurred on their property was foreseeable. An example of a foreseeable crime is if crime rates have risen in the area. If crime rates have increased in the area and a bar owner has not implemented additional safety members, a court of law could deem them negligent. In this case, the bar owner must compensate the victim's medical expenses, loss of wages, and suffering. All bar-stabbing victims should hire an experienced lawyer to determine their legal options."
