Owners of bars and restaurants owe their customers not only good service and quality food and drinks, but they also owe their customers a safe and hazard-free environment. Premises liability mandates that property owners have the responsibility to take necessary safety precautions when they welcome individuals onto their property.
Responsibility for Safety
Bar owners share an extra amount of liability because it is a well-known fact that alcohol causes changes in behavior in people who consume too much. These changes in behavior can lead to bar fights and cause innocent bystanders to be injured. Proper security must be trained in how to diffuse uproars and prevent injuries. Doormen, bouncers and even bartenders should be ready to step in if a heated discussion turns physical.
