Can Restaurant Owners Be Liable For Stabbings on Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin specializes in civil cases dealing with victims and families of restaurant stabbings. Below he has offered some of his legal insight on the potential options available to restaurant stabbing victims on this matter.

Essentially, commercial property owners are required by law to assure the safety of all of their employees and customers who are on or near their property. And to do so, they must be able to protect these patrons from preventable dangers. How can they do this one may ask? Property owners can safeguard the people on the premises by offering up adequate security – which may include things like video surveillance and metal detectors. The main point of concern here is when adequate security is not provided. Under these circumstances, a property owner may be held liable for injuries or death sustained by a stabbing victim on site. In turn, a violent crime victim can bring forward a lawsuit if inadequate security was supplied.

But a victim’s attorney must prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable in addition to there just being inadequate security by the owner. What this means is that if a restaurant owner learns that crime is rising in the area and does not take precautions, he or she could be held liable for a stabbing or shooting because it was reasonably foreseeable. Overall, a victim’s attorney must be able to show that there was inadequate security and that the crime was reasonably foreseeable for there to be a valid lawsuit against the property owner.
