Legal Options of Victims Stabbed Outside a Bar

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville, an experienced violent crime attorney, works with victims stabbed in civil lawsuits. Below, Laurence shares insight on the legal options of victims stabbed outside a bar.

“Property owners have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of those on and around their property are safe. To ensure the protection of patrons and employees from preventable dangers, property owners should implement security measures. Examples of security measures are cameras and strong lighting in parking lots, but there are plenty more. When a victim is stabbed on commercial property, the victim and their family should question whether adequate security measures were in place. Victims of stabbings should secure the services of an experienced violent crime attorney to explore all their legal options.”

“In addition to negligence, the victim’s lawyer must prove the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable. An example of a foreseeable crime is if crime increased in the area, but there were no increased measures of security. As a result, in such cases, a property owner may be deemed liable. If a victim’s lawyer can prove the bar failed to provide adequate security when they were injured and that the crime was reasonably foreseeable, the victim may have grounds for a civil lawsuit.”
