Owners and managers of bars, restaurants and other businesses in New York have a legal obligation to protect the public from other customers on their properties. That means providing adequate security to ensure that unruly patrons (or staff) are removed from the scene, and any incidents of potential violence are de-escalated as quickly as possible.
Many people may not be aware that not only criminal charges may be filed after a bar fight or similar violent incident on a business or public property, but also civil damages may be awarded to injured parties.
For more than 40 years, the lawyers of The Law Offices of Mark E. Weinberger P.C. in Rockville Centre, have been standing up to aggressively protect the rights of people injured by assault throughout the New York City five boroughs and Nassau and Suffolk counties. If you were involved in an altercation that resulted in an injury due to assault or battery, talk to one of our attorneys before you talk to the property owner or manager.
Police are trained to diffuse potentially dangerous situations. Unfortunately, many forget their training and engage in violent actions while making arrests or breaking up the incident. If you were injured by a police officer you feel was acting negligently, we will review your case for possible police misconduct or brutality charges.
We offer a free case review and consultation to review the circumstances of your inadequate or negligent security case and determine whether you have legal recourse for damages. If we feel you have a case and you hire us as your legal counsel, you will pay no retainer or attorneys’ fees unless we recover money damages on your behalf.
