Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan, an experienced violent crime attorney, represents victims of violent crimes and their families in civil lawsuits. Kevin offered to share some insight on the legal options of bar stabbing victims and their families:
"Security and protection is a legal responsibility for all property owners, including the owners of bars and other alcohol-vending establishments. Unfortunately, bars often have problems with violent crimes. These bar owners must do everything possible to prevent crimes from occurring. These property owners should implement security measures such as guards and cameras to help prevent foreseeable violent crimes on and around their property."
"When a victim is stabbed at a bar, the victim and their family have legal rights. Victims and their families should acquire the services of an experienced violent crime attorney to learn about all their legal options. In addition to the arrest of the suspect, the property owner may also be deemed liable for the incident if the crime was reasonably foreseeable. An example of a foreseeable crime is if rates in the area increased, but security measures were not increased. Some bar stabbings only occur due to negligence. Victims of stabbings and their families should know they may have grounds to a civil lawsuit against the bar owner."
