Legal Options For Victims of Bar or Lounge Stabbings
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of https://crimevictim.Attorney works with victims of bar and nightclub shootings as well as with their families in civil lawsuits. Below is Mr. Kent’s legal insight on the options that the victims have:
“Commercial property owners must fulfill their legal duty of safeguarding their customers and employees. The first step they must take, then, is providing their patrons with adequate security while on site. Things like metal detectors, video cameras, and security guards may be deemed as adequate, but of course the list goes on. If a property owner cannot provide this level of security, then he or she may be liable if a violent crime like a stabbing occurs on the premises. The victim of the violent act may have a valid lawsuit.”
“But inadequate security on its face is not merely enough to bring a lawsuit against the property owner. The violent crime must be reasonably foreseeable for the victim to have a strong case. What this means is that if the owner of a bar or lounge has heard reports of shootings and stabbings in the area and chooses not to offer the adequate security to protect its customers, then the owner may be held liable for the victim’s injuries. To be clear, the victim must prove that the owner acted negligently by not offering adequate security and ultimately ignoring the reasonably foreseeable circumstances of violent crime to have a suit.”
If you or someone else you know has become a victim of a violent crime, please do not hesitate to reach out to an experienced attorney who specializes in crime victims to discuss your legal options.
