Can I Sue If Stabbed at a Nightclub?

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is an experienced crime victim attorney who represents stabbing victims in civil lawsuits. Kevin recently sat down with Legal Herald and shared some helpful information regarding the legal options available to victims, including when they could sue for being stabbed at a nightclub.

"It is important for bar and nightclub owners to take responsibility for the safety of their staff and patrons. These businesses are often at a higher risk for violent crimes. In order to reduce the risk of violent crimes, a standard of security measures needs to be maintained. To ensure their customers and employees are safe from preventable dangers, nightclub owners can implement preventative measures such as hired security, surveillance cameras, and ample lighting. Too often, shootings and stabbings occur at nightclubs due to inadequate security and the owner's neglect. A negligent nightclub owner could be held liable in a civil lawsuit."

"A full investigation must take place if patrons or staff are injured or killed in a nightclub stabbing. Property security and whether the stabbing could have been prevented are critical to detail all of the crime's circumstances. The victims and their families may be able to pursue a civil lawsuit in cases of safety negligence. If the area was prone to violence yet the owner did not make improvements on the security; the crime could be deemed foreseeable. Victims stabbed at a bar or nightclub should speak with an experienced crime victim attorney to help identify all parties liable. The attorney can help victims navigate through their legal options and help them get the compensation they deserve."
