Could this senseless West Allis parking lot stabbing have been prevented and are justice and compensation available to the victim?
Security measures are in question “after a 68-year-old man from Butler was stabbed in the parking lot of a Burger King” Saturday night, August 11, 2018, according to TMJ 4.
West Allis police told the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel the victim was “stabbed on the left side of his face and cut numerous times on the head, chest and hands” outside the “2626 S. 108th St.” Burger King. Police have apparently since made an arrest.

Our Legal Take
Restaurant and parking lot patrons have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The Murray Law Firm questions the level of security provided on the property and whether this senseless stabbing may have been prevented.
- Have there been prior incidents of violence on or near property? What security measures, such as surveillance cameras, bright lighting, clear windows, and security patrols, were in place to protect the victim at the time of the stabbing?
Generally, property owners are required to protect all those legally on the premises from any foreseeable harm. Should the facts of this matter reveal that the restaurant or parking lot owners failed to provide adequate security to protect those on its premises, the victim may seek justice and elect to pursue legal claims for his injuries.
Based upon its prior successful experience in handling security negligence claims on behalf of victims and their families, The Murray Law Firm suggests that photographs and a thorough, unbiased inspection of the property will need to be performed immediately, before any evidence may be repaired, damaged or destroyed. Given the complexities of pursuing a negligent security case, it is imperative that the victim retain an experienced attorney who can ensure the preservation of any and all evidence that may support such a claim.
