Legal Recourse For Victims Injured in Restaurant Stabbings

Attorney contributor Aaron Blank represents victims and their families who have been injured or killed and wondering what legal options in restaurant stabbings exist. Mr. Blank has generously offered to share his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

“All commercial property owners are legally required to keep their patrons and employees safe from any preventable crime. Providing adequate security is a way to ensure this requirement. Adequate security may include hiring security personnel, establishing well-lit parking lots, and installing video surveillance. If a property owner fails to provide adequate protection, and a stabbing occurs due to their negligence, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against that owner,” explains Mr. Blank.

“Inadequate security is not the only factor necessary for a security negligence case. The victim’s attorney must also be able to prove that the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable. Essentially, if a stabbing occurs at a restaurant with a previous history of criminal violence, but no security improvements were put in place, then the crime may be deemed 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,” concludes Mr. Blank.

If you or a loved one has experienced a situation similar to this one, then you can discuss your legal options with an experienced crime victim attorney.
