Miami Beach Bars

You know the bar scene. Friendly people, having a couple of drinks, chatting, listening to music, having fun. But, after few drinks, things are not as ideal. Some people abuse alcohol, and if that awakes their aggressiveness, bar fights can follow. If you were in a Miami Beach bar and were injured in a bar fight, that can place you in need of a good Miami Beach personal injury lawyer. When good people suffer injuries in Miami Beach bar fights, it is necessary to determine who was responsible for the occurrence of the accident, because the liable person or even the bar itself may have to compensate the injured person or persons for the injuries and damages sustained.

Miami Beach Bar Fights

You could get injured in a bar fight as a participant in the fight or as a bystander. As a participant in the fight, you have been directly attacked by another person or even jumped by more than one person. Maybe it was unprovoked. Perhaps it was an overreaction. You may have been acting in self-defense.

As a bystander, you could be injured in a Miami Beach bar fight by:

  • A punch that missed the intended target in a Miami Beach bar
  • Struck by an object or item thrown such as a bottle, chair, table or keys
  • Shot by a gun in or outside a Miami Beach Bar
  • Stabbed by a knife at or near a Miami Beach bar
  • Injured by a bouncer or member of the security staff at a Miami Beach bar

According to our Miami Beach bar fight attorneys, here are several things to have in mind if you or a loved one have been injured in a bar fight in Miami Beach and you want to recover financially:

  • Was there a suitable security in the bar? Even small neighborhood bars need to be responsible when it comes to security. Miami Beach bars should have proper security measures in place is necessary.
  • Was the attacker served alcohol prior to the attack? Bar staff should be trained to recognize when to stop serving alcohol to potentially aggressive guests.
  • Are there any metal detectors at the entrance? There is no place for lethal weapon in bars.
  • Did bouncers intervene on time? Or they didn’t intervene at all? If there were bouncers in the bar, they should have reacted on time to prevent the fight, or minimize it, in the first place.
Miami Beach Bar Liability

You have two options for damages recovery for personal injuries sustained in a bar fight. The first one is to claim damages from the person who caused the bar fight and your injuries. He/she may be liable to pay you for the damages they caused. However, ordinary people who fight in bars rarely have enough money to pay for all your losses. Unlike them, bars may be covered by insurance and may be responsible for the circumstances that led to your injuries in the Miami Beach bar fight.

But, are they liable? They may well be and if so then they should be held to account. Under Florida premises liability laws, bars owe visitors a duty of care. It means an obligation to take all the reasonably necessary safety measures to provide safe entertainment environment for its visitors. When that duty is breached, often due to negligent security, Miami Beach bars may be responsible to pay your medical bills, lost wages and other damages depending on the facts of your case.

Mr. Gerson and all his team gave to my case the careful and professional attention it needed from the beginning to end. Unfortunately, a year ago I was involved in a car accident on the victim side.
