Are Bar Owners Liable For Shootings?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is a former criminal prosecutor who now represents crime victims in civil court. We have asked Brian for some input into bar owner liability for shootings and other violence:

Bar customers have a right to feel safe. In fact, the owners of bars, nightclubs, and all other properties are legally required to do all that they can to keep their properties safe from preventable dangers that could cause injuries or deaths. These legal requirements also apply to foreseeable violent crime. When a preventable bar shooting occurs because of inadequate security or another form of bar owner negligence, the victims and their families may have the right to file a lawsuit against the business for the shooting.

For example, if a shooting occurs at a bar with a prior history of violent incidents, the owner might be considered liable if he or she failed to make efforts to improve security, such as hiring security guards.

If you or someone you love has been injured or killed during a shooting at a bar or nightclub, you can learn more about your legal options by speaking to an experienced crime victim attorney.
