Legal Recourse For Victims Injured in Restaurant Stabbings

Attorney contributor and stabbing crime victim lawyer Kevin Biniazin represents victims and their families who have been injured or killed in restaurant stabbings. Mr. Biniazin has generously offered to share his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims.

“Those who own commercial properties are required by law to maintain the safety of their patrons and employees while on site. Providing adequate security is apart of this legal duty. Adequate security could include hiring security personnel or establishing well-lit parking lots. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security, and a stabbing occurs due to their negligence, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the owner”, explained Mr. Biniazin.

“Inadequate security is not the only factor necessary to have a valid security negligence case. The victim’s attorney must also prove that the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable. Essentially, if a stabbing occurs at a parking lot with a prior history of criminal violence, yet no security improvements were made, then the crime may be considered reasonably foreseeable. Overall, a violent crime victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner if the crime only occurred due to inadequate security and if it was considered reasonably foreseeable”, concluded Mr. Biniazin.

If you or a loved one has experienced a situation similar to the one above, then you can discuss your potential legal options with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
