Responsibilities Of Property Owners In Texas
Like other property owners, nightclub owners are required to adhere to a specific set of rules, regulations, and laws. When followed, these codes ensure the safety and security of patrons and guests. Nightclub owners and operators have a responsibility to make sure their code complies. When they fail in this duty and people are injured, they can be held responsible.
In an effort to gain more profit or popularity in an increasingly competitive market, nightclub owners can sacrifice adherence to codes like maximum occupancy rules. This, combined with a primary focus on alcohol sales, can be a fatal combination that may put the lives of innocent attendees in jeopardy.
Common nightclub injuries are caused by:
- Negligent security leading to attacks, assaults, brawls, rapes, and violent fights
- Poor lighting or inadequate handrails on stairs or walkways, resulting in slip and fall injuries
- Negligent maintenance, such as leaving slick or sticky liquids on the floor, leading to slip and falls
- Fires or explosions caused by pyrotechnics or other defective equipment
- Injury or wrongful death sustained by a bouncer or patron
Injury or wrongful death caused by over-pouring or over-serving alcoholic beverages
