Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson, an experienced violent crime attorney, has represented numerous victims of stabbings in civil lawsuits. In an interview, we asked Bobby to share his thoughts on the legal options of victims stabbed at a club.
"Private property owners have a legal obligation to uphold the safety of people on and around their property. To protect patrons, club owners should consider implementing security measures to provide a level of safety to those in the area. There are numerous measures property owners can take, for example, guards and cameras. If property owners do not implement security measures and someone is harmed, they may be considered liable in a civil lawsuit."
"Victims of stabbings at clubs should question if there were adequate security measures in place at the time of the incident. In stabbing cases on private property, if a crime is considered reasonably foreseeable, the property owner should be deemed negligent in a court of law. An example of a foreseeable crime is if crime rates increased in the club area, but security measures were not increased. Victims of stabbings at a club should acquire the services of an experienced violent crime attorney to learn about all their legal options."
