Can I Sue For Being Shot Inside the Bar?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is a violent crime victim attorney who represents victims shot in a bar in civil lawsuits. Brain recently discussed when a victim could sue a bar for being shot on the property

"Unfortunately, it is known that violence such as fights, stabbings, and shootings happen in environments that allow alcohol, such as bars and nightclubs. Knowing this, bar owners should take the safety of their patrons and staff very seriously. Certain safety measures can help to prevent violence from becoming a problem at bars. It should be a priority to make sure their properties are as safe as possible from the threat of preventable stabbings and shootings. Necessary steps might include hired security guards along with installing sufficient lighting and security cameras."

"When patrons or staff are injured, or worse killed, in bar shooting, it is important to determine if the shooting could have been prevented. Some bar shootings occur due to the negligence of the bar owner. Foreseeability plays a major factor in determining if they were negligent. For example, if the bar had previous issues with violence but the owner failed to improve the establishment's security, the shooting could be deemed foreseeable. In this case, the bar owner could be considered negligent and possibly held liable in a bar shooting lawsuit."
