Can I Sue For Being Stabbed Inside a Bar?

Attorney contributor Ryan Frazier is a stabbing victim attorney with years of experience representing victims of bar violence in civil lawsuits. Ryan recently discussed when a bar stabbing victim could file a lawsuit against a bar. 

"Violence at bars is not uncommon. Fights break out and can often escalate into shootings and stabbings. With this being said, a bar owner is required under certain laws to provide a duty of care. This duty includes protecting the patrons and staff within their property, whether inside the bar or in the parking lot. Usual security can include security cameras, hired guards, and even maintaining a well-lit environment. It is these measures that help to reduce preventable crimes, such as stabbings and shootings. A bar owner can be considered negligent if they fail to provide such measures."

"Much of the violence that occurs at bars could have been prevented with better security measures. If someone is hurt or killed in a bar stabbing, it is necessary to determine if the bar owner had provided sufficient security during the time of the crime. If the bar had issues with ongoing violence, yet the owner did not make any safety improvements, like initiating coat checks or using metal detectors, bar stabbing victims may have grounds to file a lawsuit based on negligence. Victims should discuss their situation with an experienced stabbing victim attorney to learn how they can recover the compensation they deserve."
