When Are Bar Owners Considered Liable For Shootings?

Attorney contributor Aaron Blank represents victims of preventable violent crimes, helping them and their families find answers and support in civil lawsuits. Here are some thoughts from Aaron about bar owner liability for shootings and bar shooting lawsuits:

All property owners have a legal duty to keep their premises protected from foreseeable dangers, including violent crime. While not all violent crime is foreseeable, some incidents are preventable and only occur because the property owner failed to have adequate safety measures in place. In bar shooting cases, the bar owner may be considered liable if the shooting is determined to be reasonably foreseeable.

For example, shootings at bars with a previous history of violence may be considered reasonably foreseeable. If the bar owner failed to have proper safety measures (such as security guards and weapons searches) in place to reduce the risk of further violence, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit.

Have you or a loved one been injured or killed in a bar or nightclub shooting? Your family has options for justice in the legal system. Consider contacting an experienced crime victim attorney to learn more about your family’s legal rights.
