Legal Options of Victims Stabbed at Bar

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an experienced violent crimes lawyer that has worked with many stabbing victims and their families in civil lawsuits. During an interview, Brian shared some knowledge on the legal options available to victims stabbed at a bar below:

“Owners of commercial property have a legal duty to maintain and protect their patrons while on their property. To do this, owners should implement security measures that could include surveillance cameras, proper lighting, and even guards. If a victim is stabbed on commercial property, the victim and their family have a right to question whether proper security measures were in place during the time of the crime. If a victim’s lawyer can prove that ample security was not provided at the time, then the victim may have grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit.”

“For the victim to have a case, the victim's lawyer must be able to prove that the property owner was negligent and that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. An example of a foreseeable crime would include if an owner knew of the increasing crime in the area yet failed to increase security measures on their property. The owner might be found liable for the violent crime in this event. In negligence cases such as these, victims should know they have a legal right to a lawsuit against the property owner and may be entitled to compensation.”
