If you or a loved one has been injured due to the negligence of a bouncer or other security personnel at a bar, nightclub, concert, sports game or other event, you may be entitled to compensation. When security staff or bouncers are too aggressive and assault and cause serious injury, they can be held accountable in a civil claim brought by the injured victim or their family.
Assault by bouncer or security staff can result in serious injuries, including broken bones, head injuries, traumatic brain injuries and, sometimes, even death.
Who Is Responsible If You Are Injured By a Bouncer or Security Guard?
Ontario has laws making the owners and occupiers of property responsible. Specifically, the Occupiers’ Liability Act requires that the owners and operators of bars and nightclubs, sporting and concert venues and other establishments, ensure that patrons are reasonably safe while they are on their premises. Employers of bouncers and security guards are also responsible to provide adequate training, instruction and supervision.
