5 Hospitalized After Stabbing Incident at Bridges Social Club

Five people suffered stabbing and cutting wounds during a large fight at a downtown Harrisburg bar in the early hours of Sunday, February 3.

Officers responded to a call from UPMC Pinnacle Harrisburg at around 1:20 a.m. after two people arrived at the hospital with stab wounds. Shortly after the first two arrivals, another 3 stab wound victims entered the hospital seeking treatment.

Investigators eventually learned that these victims were injured during a large fight on the third floor of Bridges Social Club, located on the 300 block of North Second Street.

None of the injuries are considered life-threatening, according to the police.

No arrests have yet been made in this case. Anyone with information regarding this incident has been asked to call the Harrisburg City Police at (717) 255-6516.

Legal Recourse for Bar Stabbing and Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea helps victims of bar violence and other preventable crimes recover financial compensation in civil cases. Here is his perspective on the legal options available to these victims:

All property owners have a legal duty to make sure their customers, guests, residents, and all types of visitors are safe from preventable dangers, including violent crime. But sometimes, shootings and stabbings happen at bars, nightclubs, and other businesses due to inadequate or negligent security. When this happens, the victims and their families may have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner.

Victims often ask, “How much compensation for being stabbed?

These lawsuits can help provide financial relief for damages related to the shooting or stabbing, such as medical expenses, therapy, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

For example, a bar owner might be considered negligent if the bar had a previous history of violence but no preventative measures were taken to reduce the risk of further incidents, such as hiring security guards.

If you or a loved one has recently become the victim of a bar stabbing incident, you can learn more about your family’s legal options by discussing your case with an experienced crime victim attorney.
