Legal Recourse For Victims of Bar Stabbings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent of www.CrimeVictim.Attorney works closely with bar stabbing victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has offered to share his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

“Commercial property owners must keep their patrons and employees safe from preventable crime while on their premises. To do this, property owners have to provide adequate security on site. This may include hiring security guards or establishing well-lit parking lots. If a violent crime were to occur on a commercial property due to negligent security, then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner”, explains Mr. Kent.

He continued: “Additionally, a violent crime must be considered reasonably foreseeable for the victim to be able to file a lawsuit against the property owner. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property that had a prior history of violent crime, and no safety improvements were made. Therefore, if a stabbing occurs at a bar due to inadequate security and the stabbing was deemed reasonably foreseeable, then the owner may be held liable for the crime.”

If you or someone you loved has fallen victim to a bar stabbing, you should contact an experienced crime victim attorney to discuss the legal options available to you.
