Is a Bar Liable if I Was Stabbed There?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent helps stabbing victims recover financial compensation for both personal and financial damages resulting from their injury. Brian has worked in a stabbing victim law firm for years, offered guidance to bar stabbing victims. Recently he sat down with Legal Herald to discuss when a bar can be held liable for a stabbing

"Bar owners, just like other business owners, are legally obligated to make sure their businesses are reasonably safe and secure for their patrons and staff. Protecting against foreseeable violent crime, such as stabbings, is the main goal of this legal obligation. Not all bar stabbings are preventable, but some could have been prevented if there had been better security standards. Often bars will implement measures including security cameras, well-lit parking lots, and ample security personnel to reduce the risk of violent crimes. Failure to do so can cause a bar owner to be held responsible for crimes committed on their property." 

"If the bar had a history of violent crime, the bar owner would have a greater obligation to improve the property's safety. This could include having security guards conduct a weapons search and coat check upon entry. If the bar owner failed to increase its security, they could be deemed negligent in a lawsuit. In cases involving negligence, bar stabbing victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the bar owner and may even be compensated for their injuries. Victims should go over their legal options with an experienced stabbing victim lawyer to determine their best course of legal action."
