Can Restaurant Owner Be Liable For Violent Crime on Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent specializes in civil cases that deal with restaurant stabbing victims and their families. We’ve asked him to share some of his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims in the sections below.

Business and other property owners are legally obliged to ensure the safety of all of their customers and employees. These property owners must protect their patrons from preventable dangers and in doing this they should offer adequate security on or around the premises. Video surveillance and parking lot lighting may be sufficient, but there are other alternatives as well. Furthermore, when a stabbing occurs in or around a place of business, it is important to consider whether or not adequate security was supplied by the property owner. If a store owner failed to include proper security measures on-site, property owner negligence may have played a part in the stabbing and the victim could potentially have grounds for a lawsuit here.

But in addition to proving inadequate security on the property, the victim’s attorney must also be able to prove that the violent crime committed was reasonably foreseeable. This means that the restaurant owner was made aware of the area’s violent history, but did not take necessary precautions. On these grounds, a victim may also have a lawsuit. Ultimately, however, inadequate security circumstances must accompany a reasonably foreseeable crime in order for a property owner to be considered liable.

If you or a loved one has been injured in a stabbing near a restaurant, we recommend that you contact an experienced attorney as soon as possible. You can learn more about your legal options by reaching out to one of our stabbing victim attorneys today.
