Compensation For Being Stabbed at a Bar

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville works as an attorney for a violent crime law firm in New York. Laurence recently discussed when victims might be entitled to compensation for a bar-stabbing injury

"Bars and similar establishments are required by law to offer security measures aimed at preventing violent dangers, including shootings, stabbings, and other violent crimes. Since bars have a greater danger of violence, bar owners can utilize a safety plan that includes trained security personnel, adequate lighting around the property, and a sufficient surveillance system. If a bar owner neglects its security and a patron or employee is injured, they could be held liable."

"Furthermore, if a victim is injured due to a violent crime that could have been prevented, such as a stabbing, they may have grounds to file a lawsuit for compensation. An experienced violent crime attorney will investigate if the bar owner provided enough security. Additionally, if the area had seen an increase in violence, but the security measures were not increased to reduce the risk, crimes could be deemed foreseeable. Victims of bar stabbings should consult with an experienced attorney to better understand their legal rights."
