Legal Options of Victims Stabbed at a Sports Bar

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is a violent crimes attorney and has worked with numerous victims of stabbings in civil lawsuits. In an interview, we asked Bobby to share some knowledge on the legal rights available to victims stabbed at a bar and their families below:

“Commercial property owners have a legal obligation to ensure the safety of their customers. To protect patrons from preventable dangers, owners should implement security measures such as cameras and guards. When a victim is stabbed on commercial property, that victim and their family should question whether ample security measures were in place. If a victim’s lawyer can prove that ample security was not provided, the victim may have grounds for a civil lawsuit.”

“For the victim to have a case, their lawyer must prove both that the property owner was negligent and that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. An example of such a crime is if the owner was aware of increasing crime in the bar area but did respond appropriately and increase security measures. In such cases, the owner might be deemed liable for the violent crime. In negligence cases, victims should know they may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.”
