Attorney contributor Brian Kent has represented numerous victims of violent crimes and their families in civil lawsuits. Below, Brian provided insight into the rights of victims stabbed violently outside of a night club:
“Night club owners are legally obligated to provide protection and security for patrons on and around their property. Examples of security measures include security cameras and guards, but there are plenty more. If a club owner fails to provide adequate security for patrons on and around their property, they may be deemed liable in a civil lawsuit.”
“To ensure a property owner is considered liable, a victim’s lawyer must prove there was negligence on behalf of the owner. An example of negligence is if crime rates increased in the area, and the property owner was aware but did not improve security measures. In such cases, a crime that occurred on their property would be deemed reasonably foreseeable. If a crime may be deemed foreseeable, victims should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the negligent property owner. These victims should secure the services of an experienced violent crimes attorney to explore their legal options. If the property owner is found guilty, the victim and their family may receive compensation for damages.”
