According to CBS Philly, on September 7th around 2 a.m., police responded to reports of a stabbing outside of Euphoria Night Club located on 2318, 738-740 Adams Ave, Philadelphia, PA 19124.
The motive of the stabbing is unclear, but the incident may have been caused by prior disputes between the suspect and the victim.
The victim was hospitalized but is expected to survive. Authorities found the suspect and he is in now custody.
Stabbing victim lawyer, Brian Kent is an attorney contributor who represents violent crime victims and their families in civil cases. Mr. Kent has shared his insight on the legal options available to these victims below.
Mr. Kent states, “All commercial property owners are legally obligated to protect their patrons and employees from any reasonably foreseeable crime. To successfully fulfill this duty, property owners must provide adequate security. If a nightclub owner fails to provide adequate security and a stabbing occurs due to their negligence, then he or she may be held partially liable.”
“Additionally, property owners should also be aware of their property’s history of criminal violence, and adjust security measures if necessary. If a violent crime occurs on a property with a large history of criminal violence, and no security improvements were made, then it may be considered reasonably foreseeable and the property owner may be held liable. Essentially, if a reasonably foreseeable crime occurs due to inadequate security, then the victim of that crime may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner”, explains Mr. Kent.
