The City of Toronto has over 8,000 restaurants, caterers and bars. In Toronto alone, this industry generates more than 5.8 billion dollars in revenues. Nonetheless, profits come with obligation and liability to restaurants and bars. When a business sells alcohol or charges admission fees, it owes a duty to its customers and its surrounding community. Businesses must ensure that alcohol is not over-served. That means if you were over-served and as a result injured yourself or anyone else, the restaurant or bar may be liable to both you and anyone you injured. These businesses also have an obligation to keep people and their premises secure from acts of aggression and violence.
In addition, establishments who use excessive or unreasonable force to handle or eject patrons can be held liable for any injuries sustained.
If you or someone you know has been a victim in this type of situation, you or they could have a right to compensation. Please contact Trianta Longo LLP and schedule your FREE INITIAL PHONE CONSULTATION. You pay no fees until your case is won or settled.
