Legal Options Available to Victims of Bar Stabbings

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents victims and their families injured or killed during bar stabbings in civil lawsuits. Mr. Haggard has generously offered to share his insight on the legal options available to these victims.

“It is crucial to understand that commercial property owners must be able to guarantee the safety of their employees and customers on the premises. In order to do so, owners should provide adequate security measures, which includes things like video surveillance, security guards at the door, and metal detectors. If adequate security is not provided and a customer is injured during a shooting or stabbing, the victim may be able to file a lawsuit against the property owner for their negligence”, states Mr. Haggard.

He continued: “Additionally, victims should also know that their attorney must prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable as well. For instance, if a bar owner is aware of increased crime rates in the surrounding area, chooses not to improve security, and then someone is injured or killed in a stabbing, he or she may then be held liable for the crime. Overall, a crime must be reasonably foreseeable and must have only occurred due to inadequate security for victims to have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner."

If you or someone you love has experienced a situation similar to the one above, you are encouraged to review your case with a crime victim attorney to discuss your legal options.
