People generally go to the local bar or restaurant to have a good time with family or friends. We might want to go dance or have a few drinks to celebrate a birthday. Maybe it’s to watch the big game on one of the bar’s TVs. Whatever the case may be, sometimes a night on the town can end up with someone going to the emergency room.
If you are injured during a bar fight, you may not be sure what to do next. Does the responsibility of medical bills fall on your shoulders? What happens if your injuries cause you to lose time at work? What should your next steps be?
If you are injured in a bar fight in Jersey City, Newark, or anywhere in New Jersey, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact the bar fight injury attorney at the Law Offices of Anthony Carbone today for a free consultation.
Who is Responsible for your Bar Fight Injuries?
When it comes to bar fights, there are usually two parties responsible for your injuries — the assailant and the bar itself. Whoever started the fight will probably be facing some serious criminal charges. However, with our personal injury lawyer by your side, you can hold him/her responsible for your injuries, as long as you can show that the injury was caused intentionally.
Another party who may be responsible is the bar itself. Like all businesses, it is the responsibility of the bar to keep all its customers safe from harm. In addition, the bar must provide the necessary security to keep patrons safe. If the assailant was drunk at the the time of the bar fight, then the bar is responsible because it continued to server an intoxicated customer.

Although proving responsibility after a bar fight may seem easy, you could be facing an uphill battle. Especially if someone claims you were the one responsible for the fight. You’ll need witness accounts to prove your injuries were the result of someone else’s negligence.
