Filing Lawsuits For Hookah Lounge Shootings

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan has been securing justice for victims of violent crime for years. Recently, he explained how victims and their families can file a lawsuit for being shot at a hookah lounge.

"Hookah bar patrons and staff have a right to feel safe and secure while on the premises. The level of security provided by the hookah lounge owner is of significance and is a relevant consideration when analyzing whether a shooting may have been prevented by additional security. Victims should ask if security measures, including bright lighting, surveillance cameras, and trained security personnel, were in place to deter crime. If security measures were not, the hookah lounge owner might be held liable due to its negligence."

"Victims or their families may seek justice by filing a lawsuit against the hookah lounge owner for monetary compensation. If the owner failed to improve their security despite knowing its history of violence, the crimes committed could be considered foreseeable. Victims and their families are urged to learn more about their legal options for filing a lawsuit against the negligent property owner by consulting with a shooting victim attorney."
