Legal Options of Victims and Their Families of Stabbings at a Bar

Attorney contributor Brian Kent, an experienced violent crimes lawyer, has represented numerous stabbing victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Below, Brian shares insight on the legal rights of victims' families stabbed at a bar:

"Bar property owners have a legal responsibility to provide a safe environment for those on and around their property. These owners must do their best to ensure the safety of customers and employees. To ensure safety, bar owners should implement adequate security measures. A few security measures include security cameras, guards, and strong lighting around the bar entrances. When a stabbing occurs on a bar's property, the victim's family should ask if the bar provided adequate security. If a lawyer can prove that the bar did not provide the security needed at the time of the incident, the victim's family may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the bar."

"In cases where a crime is deemed foreseeable, a bar owner could be considered liable for any violent crimes that occurred on their property due to negligence. For example, a crime would be deemed foreseeable if there were increased crime rates in the area, but the owner did not implement new security measures. Victim's families should secure an experienced violent crime attorney's services to determine whether the crime involved property owner negligence. In cases of negligence, a victim's family may have grounds for a civil lawsuit. "
