Do Nightclub Owners Have A Duty To Prevent Gun Violence?
Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazin has some thoughts on liability when violence occurs at a private business:
Keeping your premises safe is a crucial aspect of being a responsible business owner. All business owners have a legal obligation to prevent any reasonably foreseeable dangers that could end up hurting their customers or employees. In nightlife settings, screening for weapons can help greatly reduce the risk of violent crime. In cases involving crimes committed because of inadequate or negligent security measures, business owners may be held liable for damages by the people who were injured during the violent crime (or their families, in fatal incident cases).
Like all legal cases, determining liability is highly dependent on the unique and specific circumstances of a particular case. Victims of violent crime and their families should consider speaking with an experienced gun crime lawyer to better understand their legal rights.
