Night Club Injuries
Night clubs and bars are usually a place people visit to relax and have fun after a stressful work week, but they can also be a place where trouble and serious injuries can occur. A combination of excessive alcohol, load music, dim lights and crowded spaces can often lead to assaults and other violent behavior either by other patrons or even negligent security personnel.
If you or a loved one have been attacked or injured in a nightclub, bar, tavern, or other establishment, you have a right to recover compensation for your injuries.
Injuries that occur in bars, restaurants, or night clubs, fall within the area of negligence law known as premises liability. As a visitor of a club or bar, you have the right be safe and to not be assaulted or harmed by other patrons, or by over-aggressive security personnel.Proving Liability Against a Nightclub or Bar
In order to win a lawsuit against a nightclub or bar, the injured party (the Plaintiff) must show that the bar was negligent in some way and that the bar’s negligence was the cause of your injuries. One of the duties that a bar or nightclub owes to its customers is to ensure that its customers are not over-served alcohol. If a patron appears rowdy or overly intoxicated, the bar or nightclub must take steps to ensure that the intoxicated party is not served additional alcohol or is removed from the premises. Nightclubs also have a duty to provide adequately trained security for the protection of their patrons. If a bar or club fails to have adequate security personnel, or fails to have properly trained security, then a bar may be held accountable for any injuries or damages that are caused either by other patrons, or by its own employees.Hiring Massachusetts Negligent Security Lawyer
