Legal Options for Shooting Victims at a Bar
Attorney Marc Lenahan has years of trial experience representing shooting victims in civil and criminal lawsuits. Lenahan offers valuable advice for those who may be looking to receive a settlement for getting shot at a bar
"While we hope that we can live in a world where a group of people can gather safely at a public venue, unfortunately, gun violence is still a big issue in America. Business owners have the legal obligation to maintain a safe environment for all guests. There are a variety of measures a bar can take to ensure a safe environment for its guests such as security guards, implementing security checks, and installing cameras. If a business fails to implement proper safety measures and people are injured, any injured party may file a civil lawsuit."
"All shooting victims at a bar have the right to seek out legal representation. Since all businesses have liability, the business owner can be deemed a negligent third party if safety regulations were not made. If the property owner has not met proper safety expectations, it is in the victim's best interest to seek legal advice from an experienced attorney and learn more about the options for filing a civil lawsuit."
