Can Bar Owners Be Held Liable for Shootings?

Attorney contributor Anjali Nigam represents shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. We've asked him to share some information on bar owner liability for shootings on their properties:

All types of property owners are legally required to do all that they can to keep their properties secure and their customers, employees, and other visitors safe. This includes providing reasonable protection from violent crime. For bar owners, this could be done by hiring security guards or installing metal detectors in order to prevent weapons from being brought into the bar.

In some bar shooting cases, the shooting may have been prevented by better security standards. If the bar owner failed to provide a reasonable level of security, he or she could possibly be held liable if the shooting victims and their families file a lawsuit. Determining bar owner liability is a complicated process which will require assistance from an experienced crime victim attorney.

If you or a loved one has recently become a victim of a bar shooting and you're looking for justice, you can learn more about your legal options in a free consultation with one of our experienced crime victim attorneys.
