Strip Club Operator acquitted of Premises Liability Charges

gavel-1238036-300x201A male patron of a strip club suffered fatal injuries after he was shot by a security guard after being removed from the premises. However, the premises in question concerns the parking lot outside the strip club, where a fight that had broken out among some of the men that were waiting in line to enter the strip club continued. The off-duty security guard, who had returned to the club for personal reasons, noticed the situation and tried to help a man involved in the fight off the ground.  At about that time, the business operator on duty ordered the men involved in the fight off the premises and notified the authorities. One of the men that took part in the fight, left, and returned shortly after bearing a firearm. When the off-duty security noticed the situation, in which several men were armed, upon trying to break up the fight, he drew his weapon and shot the alleged instigator. The shooting victim’s parents pressed charges and a premises liability lawsuit was presented, claiming that the strip club owner or operator, owed a duty to protect the man who was shot from injuries. The case went to trial and the court ruled in favor of the strip club on the grounds that the victim was not a patron at the time of the incident, and that the premises can only be held liable for the injuries to actual customers or guests.  Upon being told to leave the premises, the court ruled that the plaintiff was no longer a customer, especially when he returned bearing a firearm.

The ruling was based on the Restaurant of Torts – Section 315.

Beauty Salon Accidents and Injuries

Those that visit a beauty salon rarely expect to suffer personal injury while getting their hair or nails done. That’s because beauty salons aim to provide a relaxing and stress-free moment, as well as a break from the tedious tasks brought on by work. However, many things can happen in a beauty salon that could lead to personal injuries to clients. For example, a woman attending a local beauty salon for a cut and color treatment, suffered injuries and mental trauma when her hair got stuck in the dryer. Though the injuries were minor, she lost a considerable amount of hair as well as a bruised scalp. The truth is, that people fail to realize the hidden dangers that lurk in beauty salons, which may involve human error or injury from over exposure to heat or chemical products. In another situation, a client visiting a beauty salon for a facial, suffered burns on the face because of a chemical reaction brought on by an outdated product applied to her face. Here, the business operator may be held liable for her injuries as measures could have been taken to prevent the incident from happening. Whenever substances such as creams, lotions, shampoos, etc., are used on the human body, they can cause injury from allergic reactions. This may not necessarily be the business operator’s fault. However, if the stylist leaves a cream or lotion on a person’s face too long, this could lead to rashes or burns. Make-up is another skin product that may lead to an allergic or chemical reaction which can cause permanent injuries such as scarring from burns.

Some of the services that may end in personal injury include:


The Perazzo Law Firm shares insight for dealing with and preventing trip and fall accidents in public places

Accidents involving cables left unattended to along the walking surfaces of places like Publix, Walmart, or other business that regularly waxes their floors or carries out other maintenance tasks, can lead to personal injuries, and should be followed up with a call to Jonathan Perazzo of the Perazzo Law Firm in Miami.

When a customer enters a Publix or a diner enters a restaurant, walking surfaces need to be clear of obstacles and free of any possible substances that may lead to a slip and fall accident. When a maintenance worker or store employee carries out tasks such as waxing floors in a supermarket aisle, this person has the duty of implementing the proper safety precautions to avoid that a customer or visitor trips over a power cable or any other object that may obstruct the walking area.

When an accident at a stadium occurs, in Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm understands that it’s best to hire a personal injury lawyer to help determine if an insurance claim for compensation should be filed to cover medical expenses, damages, and losses to the accident victim.

Just like in a Publix outlet or at McDonald’s restaurant, business operators owe a duty to visitors that enter their premises. This duty is called Premises Liability, which holds proprietors liable in the event a person is injured as a result of their negligence. Slip & fall accidents are among the most common type of accident that occurs in a sports stadium or auditorium. This is usually due to unsafe walking surfaces that can be wet, soiled, poorly lit, or have obstacles which can cause a slip, trip, or fall accident. In Miami, the Perazzo Law Firm has vast experience dealing with business operators and their insurance providers.
