Legal Recourse For Victims of Bar Stabbings

Aaron Blank is an attorney contributor who represents criminal violence victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Mr. Blank helps these victims pursue justice against negligent parties.

Mr. Blank shared, “All commercial property owners have a legal duty to protect their patrons and employees from any reasonably foreseeable dangers. A property owner must do all that they can to prevent any violent crime from happening on their premises. In order to fulfill this duty, it is necessary for property owners to provide adequate security. These property owners should also be aware of their property’s history of criminal violence, and adjust security measures if necessary. If a violent crime occurs on a property with a large history of criminal violence, then the instance may be considered reasonably foreseeable and the property owner may be held liable.”

“There are several instances when a victim of violent crime may have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner. If a bar owner fails to provide adequate security and a stabbing occurs due to their negligence, then the owner may be held partially liable. Furthermore, the stabbing must be considered reasonably foreseeable for the owner to be considered responsible”, said Mr. Blank.
