1 Hospitalized with Non-Life-Threatening Injuries After Getting Stabbed at Davidson’s Bar and Grill

Lawyer Comments: In the second part of this story, stabbing victim lawyer Brian Kent discusses situations where lawsuits can be filed for bar stabbings.

A man was stabbed in a large fight at Davidson’s Bar and Grill in Homer Glen on January 21, 2020.

Deputies with the Will County Sheriff’s office were called to the bat at around 1:24 a.m. on reports of a stabbing. According to the police, they spoke with the manager and several witnesses, who said that two separate groups of about 8 people each got into a fight inside of the bar. One of the groups accused a man from the other group of spitting on them.

Two men got into a fight which was eventually broken up. Some of the people involved in the fight were still outside when police arrived – including a 43-year-old man who told police he was in the fight and was stabbed.

The man was brought to Silver Cross Hospital for treatment of a 3-inch cut on his lower back. His injuries were not considered life-threatening.

Police have not yet found a suspect in the stabbing and this case remains under investigation.

Can I File a Lawsuit Against a Bar Owner For a Stabbing?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is a crime victim attorney who represents victims of bar stabbings and shootings in civil lawsuits. Brian has offered to share some of his knowledge on the legal rights of bar stabbing victims:

It’s not uncommon for violence to break out at bars. Fights can lead to shootings and stabbings if people involved have brought weapons into the bar.

Many violent crimes in bars are foreseeable and may have been prevented through better security measures. When someone is injured or killed in a bar stabbing, it’s important to both arrest a suspect and to determine if the bar owner had sufficient security measures in place.

In some cases, bar stabbing victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against the bar owner for negligence. For example, a bar owner could be considered negligent if the bar had prior incidents of violence, but no safety improvements were made – such as searching guests for weapons upon entry.
