Can I Sue If Stabbed on Public Transit?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent often represents victims of violent crimes in the state of Pennsylvania. He recently discussed when a victim stabbed on public transit could sue. 

"Premises liability laws are put into place to ensure the safety of both guests and staff. The transit authority is responsible for offering security features such as sufficiently lit areas, patrolling security officers, and working video surveillance. These security measures aim to reduce the risk of preventative injuries such as stabbings, shootings, and other violent crimes. The transit authority could be held accountable if basic security was neglected on the property leading up to the injury."

"In cases involving foreseeable crimes and security neglect, there may be sufficient grounds for victims to file a civil lawsuit against the transit authority. A crime may be deemed foreseeable if there was a known threat of violence in the area, but security was not increased. An experienced stabbing victim attorney can guide stabbing victims seeking to gain justice."
