Legal Rights of Victims Stabbed Outside a Bar

Attorney contributor Anjali Nigam, an experienced violent crimes attorney, has represented numerous victims of stabbings in civil lawsuits. Below, Anjali shares some of his thoughts on the legal rights of bar stabbings victims:

“Commercial property owners have a legal obligation to uphold the safety of their staff and guests both on and around their property. To provide a safe environment for all their guests, property owners should implement security measures to prevent foreseeable criminal activity. Examples of adequate security measures could include video cameras and security guards. If a violent crime occurs on commercial property, the owner may be deemed liable if such adequate security measures were not implemented. Victims and their families should question if the proper safety measures were provided during the time of the incident. If adequate security measures were not in place, the victim might have grounds for a civil lawsuit.”

"When a crime is deemed foreseeable, a bar owner could be held liable for negligence if a crime takes place on their property. An example would be if the crime rate in the area increased and the bar owner did not provide adequate upgrades to their security measures. At such time, the victims and their families should seek the counsel of a violent crime attorney to determine if the crime involved the owner's negligence and if they could be liable for a civil lawsuit."
