Going out to a concert, sports game or nightclub is a regular event for many people. Unfortunately, aggressive behaviour on the part of security personnel at these events can lead to assault and serious injury.
If you or a friend was assaulted by security staff at a nightclub or other event, you may have been subjected to physical harm or unwanted sexual contact. Regardless of whether you were partly at fault, you may be able to obtain compensation for your suffering and injuries.
In Ontario, the Occupiers’ Liability Act requires that the owners and operators of nightclubs, sporting events and concerts ensure that patrons are reasonably safe while they are attending. This includes making sure that security staff are properly trained to handle incidents without causing undue physical harm to anyone involved. If club bouncers or event security use excessive force, sexually assault a patron, or otherwise behave in an unreasonable or negligent manner, the club owners and operators can be held responsible.
