Bar and nightclub owners in North Carolina and all across the country have a legal duty to provide their patrons with a safe environment. While these places may be favored destinations for their alcoholic beverages, state liquor laws must be followed at all times. It is against the law in the state, for example, to serve patrons alcohol to the point of intoxication. It is also considered a second violation to serve patrons alcohol past the point of intoxication.
When large crowds and significant amounts of alcohol mix, bar fights have a tendency to occur. Bar owners must be able to maintain peace within the premises, and so they often employ bouncers to keep order and act as a form of security personnel. Bouncers are in charge of diffusing delicate situations, and safely separating individuals who may be fighting or causing trouble. Unfortunately, bouncers may also mishandle the situation or abuse their authority at times, and may even be the cause of a patron’s injuries.
Whether a bar fight occurs between a patron and another patron or a patron and the bouncer, then bar owners, bartenders, and even the bouncers may be held liable for any bar fight injuries resulting from their negligent or careless actions.
