Legal Options Available To Victims of Restaurant Stabbings
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney works closely with victims of restaurant stabbings in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has prepared to share his legal knowledge on the options available to these victims and their families.
Every commercial property owner is legally required to maintain the safety of their patrons and employees. In order to do this, a property owner must provide adequate security on the premises. Adequate security may includes things like security guards or well-lit parking lots. A violent crime victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner if the owner did not provide adequate security. However, it is important to remember that the the inadequate security must be the cause of the violent crime.
There is another aspect that is necessary to generate a lawsuit against a property owner. In addition to inadequate security, the victim’s lawyer must prove that the violent crime was reasonably foreseeable. For instance, if a stabbing occurs in a restaurant with a prior history of criminal violence, and the owner does nothing to improve security, then the crime may be deemed reasonably foreseeable. Overall a property owner may be held liable for a violent crime if the crime was reasonably foreseeable and was caused by inadequate security.
If you or a loved one has fallen victim to a restaurant stabbing, you can learn more about the legal options available to you and your family by discussing your case with an experienced crime victim attorney.
