Can Bar Owners Be Liable For Violent Crime on Their Properties?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of crimevictim.Attorney represents bar stabbing victims in civil cases. Mr. Kent has provided some of his legal advice below:
“Commercial property owners are legally required to protect their employees and customers from preventable dangers on or around the premises. Property owners must offer adequate security to all patrons. Adequate security includes video surveillance or a reasonable amount of security guards on site. When adequate security is not offered there may be grounds for a lawsuit. For instance, if someone gets stabbed at a bar because the owner acted negligently by not providing proper security measures, then he or she could be liable for the victim’s injuries”, states Mr. Kent.
However, in addition to proving inadequate security a violent crime victim’s attorney must also be able to show that the crime committed was reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a history of criminal violence. Overall, inadequate security followed by a reasonably foreseeable crime may allow the violent crime victim to bring forward a lawsuit against the property owner.
If you or someone you love has been affected by a bar stabbing, feel free to reach out to an experienced crime victim attorney to discuss your legal options on this matter.
