Attorney contributor Brian Kent is an attorney that specializes in violent crimes. He has represented victims of violent crimes along with their families in civil lawsuits for many years. Below, Brian has shared some insight on the rights of victims stabbed outside of a bar:
“Bar and nightclub owners have a legal obligation to provide a level of protection and security for patrons that are on and around the premises. Examples of such security measures could include installing security cameras throughout the property, having sufficient lighting, and hiring trained security guards. If a club owner falls short of providing adequate security for its patrons, they may be held liable in a civil lawsuit.”
“In order to ensure a property owner is found liable, a victim’s attorney must provide evidence that there was neglect on behalf of the owner. An example of negligence would be if crime rates were increasing in the area, but the property owner did not improve security measures even though they were aware. In cases such as this, a crime that occurs on the property could be considered reasonably foreseeable. Victims should understand that they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the negligent property owner in the event of a foreseeable crime. These victims are advised to secure the services of an experienced violent crimes attorney to explore their legal options better.”
