Knowledge of Prior Criminal Activity

When a Bar or Restaurant owner has knowledge of prior third party criminal activity on the premises he owns or controls, including adjacent parking lots in some circumstances, they have a legal obligation to provide security guards to protect the safety of their patrons and invitees.

The above Supreme Court decisions reaffirmed that even if the financial cost is substantial, a Bar and Restaurant owner that has knowledge of prior similar criminal activity and who does not hire some form of security guard, will be found to have breached its duty of care to protect its patrons and that in turn may expose it to a considerable damages award for anyone that is injured.
