When a person is attacked by another customer at a nightclub they usually want to know if they can sue the person who attacked them. The next question is whether there can be a claim against the bar.

Our attorneys take nightclub attack injury cases throughout Minnesota and pursue compensation for our clients. However, certain facts are required for a successful claim. There are often two problems with a night club or bar attack injury case: 1) It is usually challenging to actually collect compensation against the customer who attack you at the bar.  Any insurance they have will not cover them for intentionally injuring someone, and 2) It is challenging to successfully sue the nightclub or bar. The bar is not responsible just because you were injured on their property. You are trying to hold the nightclub responsible for something someone else did – the customer who attacked another customer.

When you call our office, a lawyer will discuss the details of your situation to see if there is a claim we could pursue successfully for you. We want to get your medical bills paid, and other compensation for a night club attack.  For example, we will explore if the other customer did not actually intend to hurt you. If the injury was an accident, there could be a homeowners insurance claim against the customer’s policy.


Our attorneys will also look for facts to prove that the nightclub overserved the customer or that they knew the customer was dangerous and likely to fight or attack another customer.  In those cases it is often possible for our lawyers to successfully bring a claim against the nightclub or bar and their insurance for compensation. If the customer of the nightclub was drunk the bar should have stopped serving them.  MN law holds the nightclub responsible for injuries caused people they overserved. Likewise, if the customer is known to fight or be violent, the nightclub has a duty to keep the violent customer out of the nightclub for the protection of other customers.

Whether or not you have a case after being attacked or injured at a nightclub or bar depends on the facts of what happened. What the witnesses say is important. We also look for video that might be available, and other possible evidence.
