Common Excessive Force Injuries
All too often tourists find themselves on the receiving end of a highly
unpleasant encounter with nightclub/resort security personnel; or worse,
they find themselves in a Las Vegas emergency room after being assaulted
and battered by undertrained and incompetent nightclub/resort employees
whose job is to protect them and provide a safe environment.
At the risk of generalization, the typical applicant for a nightclub/resort
security guard or bouncer position is not a person who could be characterized
as a master of diplomacy. The facts of an overwhelmingly high number of
cases lend substantial truth to this generalization. We have found, by
litigating many Las Vegas nightclub security/excessive force cases, that
in many instances, bouncers and security guards jump from job to job in
Las Vegas, and frequently wear out their welcome with various employers
for beating one too many patrons. With the exception of an employer firing
the employee, the ramifications for a hyper-aggressive, ill-trained security
guard/bouncer are few. Almost inevitably, without regard for their prior
history of improper use of force, they are re-employed by one of the dozens
of resorts/nightclubs in the Las Vegas area.
Holding the Responsible Parties Accountable
The inadequate screening and training of security guards/bouncers by Las
Vegas nightclubs and resorts is one of the most significant contributing
factors to the pervasive problem of bouncer excessive force incidents
in the Las Vegas valley. The inaction and refusal of nightclubs and resorts
to properly screen and train security personnel has resulted in the problem
growing at an unbelievable rate. Excessive force incidents are rampant.
Fortunately, victims of bouncer/nightclub security excessive force incidents
have the right and ability to take action to hold wrongdoers accountable
and receive compensation under Nevada law.
If you’re a victim of excessive force, you should take the following action:
- Document the incident and identify witnesses
- Remain silent
- Take photographs of your injuries
- Immediately contact an attorney
Victims of bouncer/nightclub security excessive force cases have a number
of causes of action under Nevada law. In Las Vegas, the law allows someone
who is unjustifiably assaulted by a nightclub/resort employee various
theories under which they can hold
both the nightclub/resort and employee/security guard responsible. In other words,
both the club/resort owner and the individual security guard/bouncer can be
found liable for illegal uses of force. Typical causes of action in many
Las Vegas bouncer/security guard excessive force cases include negligence,
defamation, battery, assault, false imprisonment, and any other related
torts which fit the facts of the individual case.
