Justice For Victims Stabbed at a Nightclub

Attorney contributor Kristen Beighton is an experienced violent crime attorney who works with victims of stabbings seeking justice through civil lawsuits. Kristen recently shared her insight on the legal options of victims stabbed at a nightclub.

"Property owners, including bars and nightclubs, have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of their staff and patrons. They should provide adequate protection and safety by putting in place necessary safeguards. Proper parking lot lighting, security cameras, and trained security bouncers are just a few examples. In the event of a stabbing, the victim and their family should question the security measures in place at the time of the crime. The nightclub owner could be held liable if security was found to be lacking."

"Victims of violent crimes, like stabbings, should seek the advice of an experienced violent crime attorney who can best explain their legal options. For instance, if the crime in the area was on the rise but the nightclub owner failed to increase the security measures, the crime may be considered foreseeable. In the event of a foreseeable crime, the victim may have sufficient grounds for a civil lawsuit and potentially be entitled to compensation."
