Bar And Nightclub Injury attorney in Florida
South Florida is a major tourist attraction and it is known for having some of the best nightlife around the world. Some of the best restaurants, bars, and nightclubs are located right here on our shores. Bars and nightclubs are typically safe environments where patrons can enjoy each other’s company over drinks and good music. Although the sunshine state can offer plenty of entertainment to tourists and locals alike, there are times when things can get out of hand, especially when alcohol is involved. Bar fights are as old as the constitution and the consequences can be vicious. A simple disagreement can quickly escalate into an all-out brawl, with multiple parties attacking one another.
What Should You Do If You’re Involved In A Bar Fight
The first thing you should do is notify the bar or nightclub’s management about what happened. Take photos, get witness information, file an incident report (and keep a copy of it) if possible. Today, most people have cameras on their cellphones so obtaining any footage of your fight and injury can be very helpful.
The second thing you should do if you are injured in a bar fight is to get medical attention. Treating your injuries quickly may prevent you from suffering permanent harm. In addition, having proof that you were injured and treated by professional health care workers can strengthen your case. It will be a lot easier to convince a judge or jury that you were injured if you have a treatment plan, a prescription, and/or medical bills.
Steps To Take If You’ve Injured In An Accident
Bar owners, managers, employees, and the other person who caused the fight may all be held accountable. Bar owners, managers, and employees are responsible for providing a safe environment for their customers. When these safety measures are breached, a bar owner may become liable for the customer’s injury. Some of the safety measures a bar owner should take to protect their patrons include:
- Hiring competent bouncers
- Removing intoxicated clients
- Limiting the amount of alcohol served to intoxicated patrons
- Securing tables, chairs, and other furnitures
- Denying entrance to known trouble-makers
- Keeping underage patrons out of their establishment.
Whether you were injured by another patron or roughed up by an aggressive bouncer, you may be entitled to compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. We can talk to you about the situation and the best options for your recovery.
