Is a Business Liable if I Was Stabbed There?

Stabbing victim lawyer Laurence Banville helps stabbing victims recover financial compensation for the personal and financial difficulties they face. Laurence has offered to share some information on bar owner liability for stabbings on their properties:

Bar owners and all other business owners are legally obligated to make sure their businesses are reasonably safe and secure. Protecting against foreseeable violent crime is part of this legal obligation. While not all bar stabbings and shootings are preventable, some may not have happened if there had been better security standards.

For example, if there had been violence at the same bar in the past, the bar owner would have an obligation to make efforts to improve safety – such as having security guards who could search patrons for weapons upon entry. If the bar had inadequate security standards, the bar owner could possibly be deemed negligent. In cases involving negligence, bar stabbing victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against the bar owner.

If you or a loved one is a bar stabbing victim, you can learn more about your legal options by discussing your case with one of our experienced stabbing victims lawyers.
