Negligent Security in Illinois Bars

Generally speaking, if a premises has a history of criminal activity, the owner bears a greater responsibility in preventing further assaults, robberies and other crimes. All bar owners must take certain steps to ensure the safety of patrons, whether the bar is in a high-crime area or not.

Examples of bar owner negligence include:

  • Security staff and bouncers failing to prevent or intervene in a bar fight
  • Inadequate lighting in parking lots, vestibules and other areas adjacent to the bar
  • Serving patrons too much alcohol, which can lead to an intoxicated patron causing an injury by assault or drunk driving (dram shop liability)
  • Failure to maintain locks and security systems
  • Blocking emergency exits
  • Failure to warn patrons of known dangers

Bar owners are responsible for more than security. Like other property owners, they must maintain the premises to minimize the risk of slip-and-fall accidents and other types of accidents. Our lawyers are well-versed in Illinois premises liability law and can help you pursue compensation for the losses you have suffered due to negligent security and other forms of negligence by property owners.
