Assault by Security Guards

Everyone is aware when going out at night to licensed venues that many of the them have security guards.  The security guards are there to ensure the safety and protection of the venue and patrons.  There have been occasions when security guards employed at pubs and clubs take their role beyond what is lawful.  Security guards can ask you to leave a venue if you are intoxicated, fighting or generally disturbing other patrons.  It is important to remember that Security guards should only use as much force as is necessary.  There have been occasions when security guards have used more force than was necessary to remove someone from a venue.  This has resulted in people sustaining injuries ranging from minor to serious.  It is important to remember that most venues today have CCTV footage.  It is also very clear that security guards who act beyond what is reasonable and necessary can find that they have committed a crime.

If you believe that you have suffered an injury or been charged unfairly as a result of an incident at a licensed venue you should consult legal advice.  We are experts in this area of the law and we can provide you with our expertise.  Contact us on 1300 859 713.
