Premise Liability: Popular 4th Ave. Bar Responsible for Patron's Death

We represented the family of a Safford, AZ man visiting a popular 4th Ave. tavern. The tavern's policies prohibited customers from bringing weapons inside the bar, and security staff was required to see that people coming in did not have any weapons with them. Our client's son was inside the bar with his brother and girlfriend when an argument erupted. Bar security did not intervene, and instead waited for the argument to calm. A few moments later, the same group of responsible for starting the first argument started a second fight. This time, our client's son was stabbed in the melee. We represented the deceased man's parents and his young child. This case was settled for a confidential amount prior to trial.
