Legal Options Available to Victims Injured in Restaurant Stabbings

Attorney commentary Laurence Banville represents victims and their families injured or killed in restaurant stabbings. Mr. Banville has generously shared his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families left wondering “Can I sue for being stabbed?“.

“All property owners are legally obliged to ensure the safety of all their employees and customers on or around the premises. In order to do so, owners can offer adequate security on-site, which may include things like video surveillance, parking lot lighting, security guards at the door, and metal detectors. If a violent crime does occur on-site and adequate security was not provided, then the victim may have ground for a lawsuit against the property owner”, states Mr. Banville.

He proceeded to explain, “In addition, a victim’s attorney must also be able to show that the crime which occurred on site was reasonably foreseeable. For example, if a restaurant owner knows that shootings and stabbings are becoming more frequent in the area, decides not to take precautions, and when someone is hurt or killed, he or she may be held liable for the crime. To be clear, however, both inadequate security and a reasonably foreseeable crime must be proven by the victim’s attorney in order for a lawsuit to be considered valid against a property owner.”

If you or someone you know has been injured or killed in a restaurant stabbing you can contact an experienced crime victim lawyer for advice on your legal options.
