Legal Options of Victims Stabbed Outside of a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville represents victims of stabbings and their families in civil lawsuits. Below, we asked Laurence to share his commentary on the rights of victims injured during a stabbing outside a restaurant.

“Restaurant owners have a legal obligation to uphold the safety of patrons on and around their property. To ensure the safety of patrons, restaurant owners should implement security measures. For example, security cameras, well-lit parking lots, or security guards. If someone is injured on the property of a restaurant, but the owner did not provide ample security, the owner may be considered liable in a court of law.”

“In cases of violent crimes, a restaurant owner may be deemed liable if the crime is considered reasonably foreseeable. An example of a foreseeable crime would be if crimes occurred previously at the restaurant or in the area and the owner did not increase the security measures. If the crime is deemed reasonably foreseeable, the restaurant owner could be considered negligent in the violent crime. Victims and their families should know that in cases of negligence, they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the restaurant.”
