26+ Years of Experience as a Negligent Security Attorney Serving Bakersfield
When you go out to a bar, restaurant or club the last thing you expect is to be injured, mugged, or assaulted. Unfortunately, patrons of local nightclubs, bars, and restaurants are often injured when these establishments fail to provide adequate security. Recently, a Bakersfield man was killed during a fight at Regency Lanes bowling alley on Real Rd. and Chester Ln. after an argument. These types of incidents are often unpredictable and unfortunately quite common at places where there are large groups of people and alcohol.

What Is Negligent Security?
Negligent security can take many forms, including:
- Overzealous & aggressive security guards or bouncers
- Lack of proper locks on windows and doors
- Lack of adequate security personnel, resulting in a fight or assault that could’ve been prevented
- Incompetent or inadequately trained security personnel
- Lack of proper lighting
- Lack of security cameras
- Inadequate security patrols
- Failure to protect against foreseeable harm
- Lack of security alarms
Failure to Protect Against Criminal Acts
According to California law, property owners in Bakersfield are negligent if they failed to take reasonable steps to secure their property against foreseeable criminal acts by third parties. If there has been a history of assaults, muggings, or bar fights in the establishment or the surrounding area, property owners may be obligated to provide enhanced security. The threat of criminal activity in these cases could be considered foreseeable.
The Paris Firm has a history of achieving great verdicts and settlements for clients in negligent security claims. If you or a member of your family was assaulted, mugged, or otherwise injured in a bar, restaurant, or night club, please call (909) 325-6185 to discuss your case and options.
Filing a Negligent Security Claim
If you have been injured in a criminal attack or assault on someone else’s property or at work, you may be able to recover compensation for your medical bills, lost income, and more from the property or business owner or the entity in control of the property. Property owners and businesses have a duty to provide adequate protection from criminal attacks. Although you may have a good personal injury case against the person who attacked you, your chances of actually collecting the money are much better when you pursue a negligent security lawsuit against the business or property owner.
Getting Compensation for Negligent Security Injuries
As experienced premises liability attorneys, we can help you prove if there was a duty to prevent or try harder to prevent the assault that caused your injuries. However, you need to act quickly to protect your rights and to preserve vital evidence in your case. Please call The Paris Firm at (909) 551-4040 or contact us online and a injury lawyer from Bakersfield will speak with you about your case.
