Can Victims Sue for Bar Stabbings?

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson is an experienced stabbing victim lawyer who works with victims of violent crimes in private civil suits. Jeff has kindly provided some information to help stabbing victims determine if they can sue for being stabbed at a bar

"Property owners have a legal responsibility to uphold premises liability law for the safety of their patrons and staff. Bar and nightclub owners must implement a higher security standard, as their businesses are known to have a greater risk for violent crimes. Bar owners should implement safety measures that include hiring security personnel, video camera surveillance, and sufficient lighting around the property. If owners do not take proper security measures, they can be considered negligent and may even be held liable for crimes committed on the property."

"Victims of bar stabbings should retain an experienced stabbing victim lawyer to prove that the bar owner was negligent. They will investigate if the crime was reasonably foreseeable. A bar owner who knew of a history of criminal activity at the establishment or in the area would be responsible for increasing security at the bar. This could be achieved by conducting coat checks or using metal detectors. Failure to improve security could result in the bar owner being held responsible for damages incurred."
