Nightclub Accidents and Injuries

Margaritas On a nightly basis, thousands of people head to nightclubs in the Los Angeles area to socialize with friends, meet new people, dance, and have a few drinks. Unfortunately, nightclubs are also establishments with a high risk of accidents and injuries to patrons. Many of these accidents and injuries occur because the owner or staff of the nightclub acted in a negligent manner.

Common Causes of Nightclub Accidents

a Owners are required under the law to keep the premises of their nightclub in a reasonably safe condition for all patrons and visitors. The following are some examples of acts of negligence 1 that can lead to nightclub accidents:

  • Over-serving patrons who then become unruly
  • Allowing already intoxicated and belligerent individuals into the club
  • Providing inadequate security in and around the nightclub
  • Bouncers who wrongfully assault patrons
  • Having hazardous conditions including low lighting, objects or obstacles in walkways, slippery floors, and more.
  • Locking emergency exits
  • Overcrowding that can lead to trampling
  • Allowing patrons in with weapons
  • Dangerous pyrotechnics
  • Violating other safety code provisions

The above are only some examples of negligence that can cause serious injuries to individuals in a nightclub. One moment a patron can be enjoying themselves and the next, they may sustain injuries including broken bones, facial fractures, serious contusions or lacerations, vision or hearing impairments, burns, brain injury,2 and more. Victims of nightclub accidents may be entitled to substantial compensation for their losses, including medical expenses, physical pain, lost income, emotional distress, and permanent disabilities.

I have known Steven for some time now and when his services were required he jumped in and took control of my cases. I had two and they were handled with the utmost professionalism and courtesy. He went the extra mile regardless of the bumps in the road. I can not see me using any other attorney and I would recommend him to any of my family and friends. Josie A.

Steven was vital during our most trying time. He was referred by a friend after an accident that involved a family member. While he was critical and lying in the hospital, Steven was kind, patient and knowledgeable about what we were going through. Following our loss, Steven became a tough and aggressive negotiator and made sure that we receive a huge compensation. I would refer Steven in fact, this happened 2 years ago and I still speak highly of his service. Cheryl S.
