Lawsuits For Bar Stabbings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents victims of bar stabbings and other violent crimes in civil lawsuits. Here are some thoughts from Brian on the legal rights of those who have been stabbed or shot in bars and nightclubs:

The safety of patrons and employees must be a top priority for all bar owners. In fact, the owners of bars and other businesses are legally obligated to make sure their properties are safe from preventable dangers, including foreseeable violent crime. When people are injured in a stabbing or shooting at a bar, it’s important to determine if the crime was foreseeable and if bar owner negligence played a role.

For example, a bar stabbing might be considered foreseeable if there had been previous violent crimes at the bar. If so, the bar owner would have a legal obligation to improve safety. If a stabbing happened due to the bar owner’s failure to improve safety, the owner could be considered negligent.
