Can I Sue For Being Stabbed at a Bar or Restaurant?

Crime victim lawyer Kim Dougherty helps stabbing victims and their families recover the financial compensation they need and deserve through civil lawsuits. Kim has some thoughts to share on the legal options available to bar stabbing victims and their families:

The owners of bars, restaurants, and all other businesses have a legal duty to make sure their properties are reasonably secure. This includes reasonable security measures that can reduce the risk of violent crime. When a stabbing happens at a bar, it's important to both find the suspect and to determine if the stabbing could have been prevented by better security measures.

Some bar stabbings only happen due to the owner's failure to meet their legal duty to safeguard their premises. This is often the case when the location had a history of other violent crime. Property owners must take preventative measures to minimize the risk of future violent crime, such as hiring security. In cases where the owner failed to have adequate security standards in place, bar stabbing victims may have grounds for a lawsuit.
