Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson helps victims of stabbings recover the financial compensation they deserve for the difficulties they face after their injury. Bobby, an experienced stabbing victim attorney, discusses a popular question for victims: can you sue for being stabbed?
"While it is common to criminally charge the suspected stabber, which will lead to their arrest and possible conviction, it is not the only avenue for victims to recover compensation. The school property that the stabbing took place may have played a part in the crime taking place. It is the legal obligation of a school to maintain a safe campus for all students and staff. Safety measures such as security cameras, metal detectors, and patrolling security officers are just some of the preventative security measures that should be in place."
"If a violent crime, such as a stabbing, takes place on a school campus, an investigation should help to determine if the school did all they could to prevent the crime. If they are found to be lacking in safety, they could be held liable based on negligence. In the event, that crime in the area or on the campus was increasing, and the school failed to increase its security measures, a crime could be deemed reasonably foreseeable."
"Victims of violent crimes, like stabbings, are encouraged to fully explore their legal options with an experienced stabbing victim attorney. In some cases, they may be entitled to financial compensation."
