Legal Recourse For Victims of Bar Stabbings

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson is an experienced violent crime attorney who represents victims of stabbings and shootings in civil lawsuits. Jeff has shared his insight about the legal rights of these victims.

All commercial property owners of places like bars and restaurants are legally obligated to maintain a safe property for patrons and employees. In order to do so, property owners must provide adequate security on their premises.

This may include things like installing video surveillance and hiring security guards. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security and someone is injured from violent crime, then he or she may be held liable for their injuries.

However, this is not the only factor necessary for the owner to be held responsible. The crime must have been reasonably foreseeable. For example, if crime rates were rising in the area yet a bar owner did nothing to improve security, then any violent crime to occur on their property may be considered reasonably foreseeable. Overall a victim’s lawyer must prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable and that security was inadequate in order for a property owner to be held responsible.
