Were you injured in a bar or restaurant because of inadequate security? We’ll get you the compensation you deserve.
Bar and restaurant owners and other establishments that serve the public have a legal obligation to exercise reasonable care to ensure protection to their customers against injury or assault by other unruly or drunken customers.
Bar fights and other assaults can result in severe injuries to an innocent party. If you have been injured due to an assault or attack from another party while in a bar, restaurant, or other establishment serving the public, please contact the Bennett Law Group at our Atlanta offices. Our attorneys will sit down with you free of charge and discuss your situation and advise you of your options.
If you have been injured in an attack from another customer who was drunk or otherwise unruly, you have the right to be compensated for your injuries. This includes all medical treatments resulting from the assault, including past treatment and future treatment or rehabilitation that may be necessary, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other expenses which arise as a result of the attack. Depending on the severity of your injuries and your individual situation, you may also be eligible for compensation for loss of enjoyment of life.
An restaurant, bar, or other simiilar business that serves the public has a duty to take reasonable measures to prevent harm or injury to those frequenting their establishment. If these measures were not taken and you suffered injury from another party as a result, the establishment owners may be held liable.
Some of the measures that should be taken by bar and restaurant owners include:
- Providing security guards or bouncers if in a bar setting
- Installing cameras and other surveillance equipment throughout the building
- Ensuring that there is adequate lighting throughout the establishment
If no security measures are in place, innocent customers may become the victims of others who are angry or have had too much to drink. This can include assault, sexual assault, robbery, abduction, or even murder. Experiencing any one of these events is extremely emotionally traumatic.
If you or a loved one has been the victim of an attack or assault from another customer while on the property of a bar, restaurant, or other establishment serving the public, you may be eligible to file a premises liability claim against the owner of the business. It is their duty to provide a reasonably safe environment for those who come onto their property, and this includes protecting against attacks or assaults by other customers.
If you are the victim of such an attack and have been injured through no fault of your own, please contact us at the Bennett Law Group.
