Proven Representation For New York Nightclub Assault Victims

The lack of adequate security in a bar, restaurant or other nighttime destination can suddenly become a serious concern or even a tragic, deadly mistake. Were you seriously injured in an attack that should have been prevented? Are you grieving the wrongful death of a family member at the hands of a violent criminal?

Our Lawyers Know How To Prove Liability For Negligent Security

While seeing your attacker prosecuted within New York's criminal justice system may provide a measure of closure, that process will not address the medical costs, lost wages and other financial consequences you are facing. In addition, many assault victims require long-term counseling to recover emotionally.

In this traumatic time, the best step you can take is to contact us at Goidel & Siegel LLP. Based in Manhattan, we represent personal injury victims in the Bronx, Brooklyn and all throughout the NYC metro area — and security negligence claims are a specific, long-standing strength.

In one of many nightclub injury cases we have handled successfully, attorney Andrew Siegel led the way in obtaining a $290,000 recovery for a man stabbed by another patron in a Manhattan nightclub, resulting in a punctured liver and flesh wound.

We have decades of experience holding owners accountable for negligent security that enabled assaults in their nightclubs. Key considerations in your case may include:

  • Whether security systems, staff and procedures at the club were adequate given its location, history of criminal activity and other factors
  • Whether metal detectors should have been deployed at entry points to prevent patrons from bringing guns, knives and other lethal weapons into the nightclub
  • Whether bouncers or security guards had the opportunity to intervene in an erupting altercation but failed to do so — or if they forced the people involved to leave at the same time and the assault occurred outside the club
