Attorney Laurence Banville has extensive experience defending victims of violent crimes, including cases of stabbings. In an interview, Banville shared valuable advice for victims seeking to hire a stabbing crime victim lawyer.
"Bar owners have a legal obligation to uphold a safe environment for all patrons in and surrounding their property. To ensure the protection of all patrons, owners should implement safety measures including, but not limited to, security guards, checks, and cameras. If someone is hurt on their property, the business owner could be held liable if the court determines proper safety regulations were not put in place."
"In cases of violent crimes, including stabbings, liability is determined in the case of negligence which is determined if the crime is foreseeable. A foreseeable crime can be determined from various factors, including if crime rates have gone up in the area. In that case, if a bar owner has not implemented additional safety measures, they could be held liable for a victim's injuries. It is in the best interest of all stabbing victims to hire an experienced criminal attorney to determine their legal options."
