Legal Options for Victims of Bar Stabbing

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville works with victims of violent crime in civil lawsuits. In an interview, we asked him to share some of his knowledge on the legal options available to bar stabbing victims and their families below:

“Commercial property owners are legally obligated to ensure the safety of all of their customers and employees. These property owners should protect their patrons from preventable dangers by offering adequate security on and around the property. Examples of adequate security are video surveillance and enhanced lighting, but there are other options. When a stabbing occurs on an owner’s property, the victim and their family must ask whether or not there was adequate security provided. If a victim’s lawyer can prove that adequate security was not provided when they were injured, the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner for negligence.”

“Despite negligence, for the victim to have a case, their lawyer must prove the crime was reasonably foreseeable. For example, if the owner was aware of increasing crime in or around the bar area, but did not increase security measures. In such cases, the owner may be liable for the violent crime inflicted because it was reasonably foreseeable. A victim should secure the services of a violent crime attorney to help determine whether the crime was reasonably foreseeable and whether there was negligence on behalf of the property owner.”
