In certain circumstances, you may be able to bring a civil case against a person or business for assault and battery for allowing bad conduct to occur. Bars, restaurants, and other establishments that serve alcohol but fail to safeguard their customers are typical defendants in this area. Alcohol sales are huge profit centers and along with the financial windfall that comes from ownership of a liquor licenses, comes certain responsibilities as well.
Rather than seeking criminal liability, the plaintiff seeks monetary compensation for their injuries. For example, if a business allows for underage drinking, and a fight breaks out, the injured parties may be able to sue the business for their role in the fight. In this scenario, the business is responsible for their negligence in allowing minors to drink which resulted in injuries to the patrons.
