Wife files premises liability suit re husband's stadium beating

Anytime large crowds gather in stadiums, concert venues, parks or other places in Florida, there is a risk of attendees being harmed if a crowd gets out of control. Places often protect attendees of events by providing security, adequate lighting and other means of crowd control. Sadly, one man in another state was tragically injured leaving a baseball game with 20,000 other fans. His wife has filed a premises liability lawsuit against the stadium where the accident occurred and her husband's attackers.

The man was leaving a Major League Baseball game with his cousin when he was allegedly attacked by a 29-year-old man and his mother. Reportedly, the man and his mother were heckling the victim's cousin, who was wearing Mets paraphernalia. The Mets had lost the game to the Dodgers. It is unclear how things spiraled out of control, but the man allegedly knocked the victim down. It is alleged that the assailant's mother assisted in the attack. 

Sadly, the victim suffered a traumatic brain injury as a result of the attack, and his wife asserts that the injury has changed him and their relationship. The lawsuit is accusing the Dodger's Stadium of providing inadequate security. She has included the alleged attackers in the claim as well. Although the mother of the attacker has not be been criminally charged for her involvement, her son was sentenced to 14 days in jail, community service and ordered to pay restitution.

While individuals have a responsibility to protect ourselves, there are times when another person's negligent or intentional acts may result in harm. When a company or other venue does not provide necessary safety measures for those who visit, they may bear financial responsibility for a person's injuries. Those in Florida who believe they may have a premises liability case can discover their options after speaking to an attorney.
