Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan works with victims of violent crime in civil lawsuits. Below, Kevin shared his knowledge on the legal right of victims stabbed in a bar and their families:
“Property owners are legally obligated to protect their patrons from preventable dangers by offering adequate security on and around the property. Examples of security are enhanced lighting and security guards. When a victim is stabbed at a bar, the victim and their family must ask whether there was ample security. If adequate security was not provided, the victim might have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the property owner for negligence.”
“A victim’s lawyer must prove the victim was injured as a result of a crime that was reasonably foreseeable. For example, if the owner was aware of previous crime in the area, but did not improve security. The owner may be liable for violent crime and the victim’s injuries. In such cases, the victim should secure a violent crime attorney’s services to determine whether the crime was reasonably foreseeable and if the property owner was negligent.”
