nightclub injury attorneyLos Angeles is known for its social scene. On any night of the week, thousands of residents and tourists head to nightclubs in the greater Los Angeles area to socialize with their friends, meet knew people, have a few drinks and simply have fun. However, going to a nightclub is not always fun and games. These establishments carry a high risk of accidents and injuries to patrons. Most of these accidents and resulting injuries happen as a result of the negligence of the nightclub owner and/or its employees.

Causes of Night Club Accidents

Similar to other property and business owners, nightclub owners are required under the law to maintain their premises in a reasonably safe condition for all patrons and visitors. Some examples of negligent actions of club owners or their staff that can lead to accidents are discussed below:

  • Serving too much alcohol to patrons who then become disruptive and disorderly
  • Permitting individuals who are already too intoxicated and belligerent to enter the nightclub
  • Failing to provide adequate security in and around the premises
  • Hiring bouncers or companies that allow their bouncers to wrongfully assault the patrons
  • Allowing hazardous conditions, such as objects or obstacles in walkways, to remain on their premises
  • Failing to provide adequate lighting

  • Allowing patrons to enter the premises with dangerous weapons
  • Having dangerous pyrotechnics
  • Violating other safety code provisions
