Night Clubs versus Residential Properties
Residential or commercial property owners have a duty to take reasonable steps to minimize the risk of injury to visitors. If the owner knows or has reason to know that a visitor may be exposed to risk of injury absent adequate security, you may seek financial recovery for any losses you incurred.
Night Clubs, or any place that serves alcohol, are completely different than high rise buildings or office buildings. With alcohol in the picture, the duty of the owner of the establishment is higher than others. There are many factors which play into a determination that the establishment provided inadequate security.
- Is there a record of violence in the bar or club?
- Does the club use a lot of cash?
- Does the club check patrons for weapons?
- Are there cameras?
