Can I Sue When Stabbed in a Bar Parking Lot?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent frequently works with victims of violent crimes in private civil suits. Brian recently shared some information for victims of violent crime, including when a victim can sue for being stabbed at a bar.

"Bar owners have a basic responsibility to protect guests, visitors, and staff from violent crime. By law, they should provide security measures such as security guards, video monitoring surveillance, and ample lighting in parking lots. However, if bar owners do not take proper security measures, they can be held negligent in court."

"To prove the bar's security was negligent is important for victims of bar violence in order to file a lawsuit. They must identify the crime was reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime can occur whenever a patron is hurt on a bar's property, yet adequate security was ignored despite knowing of the risks of violence. If the bar owner knew about previous criminal activity and did not add to the property's security, they can be held liable."

"Victims of a bar stabbing will likely incur many costs for medical and other expenses related directly to the injury. By hiring an experienced violent crimes attorney, victims can file a civil lawsuit, and rest assured they will get the financial compensation they deserve."
