The Pressed Democrat reports that on Sunday, August 25th a member of the security staff at Stout Brother Pub reported a stabbing outside of the bar at around 2 a.m. The bar is located at 527 4th St, Santa Rosa, CA 95401.

Three men allegedly initiated an altercation which turned into a physical fight in the parking lot behind the pub. Everyone had left the scene before police arrived.

Legal Options Available To Victims Of Bar Stabbings

Attorney contributor Mike Pfau represents victims and their families who have been injured or killed in bar stabbings. Mr. Pfau has offered to share his knowledge on the legal options available to these victims.

“In general, commercial property owners are legally obligated to ensure the safety of their customers and employees. In order to keep patrons safe from preventable dangers, property owners need to provide adequate security on the premises.  Unfortunately, there are times when adequate security is not offered and as a result, someone may fall victim to a stabbing or another violent crime. If this occurs, the victim may be able to bring a lawsuit against the property owner who may have acted negligently in failing to offer proper security measures on the premises”, explained Mr. Kent.

He continued: “Nonetheless, a violent crime victim’s attorney must also prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable in addition to inadequate security. This means that if a bar owner knew that criminal violence was rising in the area, did not decide to improve security measures, and then someone was injured, he or she may be held liable for the crime. A stabbing victim lawyer must prove that the inadequate security caused the injury and that the crime was reasonably foreseeable for there to be a valid lawsuit.”
