Can I Sue For Being Stabbed?

Attorney contributor Jesse Forbes is an experienced stabbing victim lawyer in West Virginia. Paul helps stabbing victims recover compensation for the personal and financial burdens resulting from a violent crime injury. Paul recently shared some information regarding the victim's legal options following a stabbing during medical transit.

"Owners of medical transportation are legally obligated to make sure their employees are reasonably safe and secure during their shifts. Protection should include foreseeable violent crime. While not all stabbings are preventable, some might have been prevented if better security standards had been in place. Lately, there has been an uptick in assaults against EMS workers; for this reason, safety precautions should be taken seriously. These can include proper training for EMS workers to recognize body language, such as an agitated or anxious person. Additionally, they may conduct visual weapons checks."

"If violence takes place against an EMS worker, their employer has an obligation to make efforts to improve safety. If the employer had inadequate security standards, such as failing to properly train the EMS worker for violent assaults, they could be deemed negligent. In cases involving negligence, stabbing victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against their employer."
