Can I Sue For Being Stabbed At A Restaurant?

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is an experienced violent crime lawyer who represents victims and of violent crimes in civil suits. Below, Kevin has shared his knowledge about the possible legal options available to these victims.

A crucial part of being a commercial property owner is keeping your patrons and employees safe. In order to do so, property owners are legally obliged to provide adequate security on their premises. This may include things like well-lit parking lots and security personnel.

If a property owner fails to provide adequate security and someone is injured or killed on their property, then he or she may be held liable for the victim’s injuries. However, this is only possible if the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable. For instance, if a stabbing occurred at a restaurant with a previous history of violence and the owner did nothing to improve the security, then the stabbing may be deemed reasonably foreseeable.

Essentially, if a reasonably foreseeable crime injures someone on a commercial property with inadequate security, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.
