Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is an experienced stabbing victim lawyer representing victims in California. During a recent discussion, Bobby explained when stabbing victims can sue a bar for compensation.
"By law, bars and other establishments have a responsibility to prevent all foreseeable and known dangers, including reducing the risk of shootings, stabbings, and other violent crimes. Bars have a heightened risk for violence, so the owner should maintain sufficient security at all times, including security guards, good lighting, and a security camera system. Without ample security measures, a bar owner can be found negligent. If a bar owner's negligence or negligent security have allowed a crime to occur, victims might have the right to file a liability claim against the bar owner."
"Additionally, if the security is lacking despite the owner knowing of increased incidents in the area, the crimes would be reasonably foreseeable. Victims and their families may need help from an experienced stabbing victim lawyer to help prove the bar stabbing was foreseeable and that the bar owner failed to offer adequate security to prevent the violence."
