Did A Bouncer Use Excessive Force On You? We Can Help
THE USE OF EXCESSIVE FORCE BY NIGHTCLUB SECURITY/BOUNCERS IN LAS VEGAS IS AT AN ALL-TIME HIGH.
Almost weekly, new news stories appear detailing allegations of tourists and/or nightclub patrons being beaten and roughly treated by hyper-aggressive, undertrained, and frequently, emotionally unstable resort security personnel. People from all over the world, seeking to have a relaxing and enjoyable vacation, spend their hard-earned money in the resorts and nightclubs of Las Vegas. At a bare minimum, they are entitled to enjoy their time away from home in a safe and secure environment.

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 Bouncers and Security Accountable For Your Injuries
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.
