When Can Bar Owners Be Sued For Shootings and Other Violence?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard has some thoughts to share on property owner liability for shootings and stabbings:

While many cases of violent crime are unpredictable, others are reasonably foreseeable and may have been preventable if a property owner had taken the proper precautions. For example, if a bar or nightclub has a history of violent incidents or is located in an area with high violent crime rates, that bar owner has a legal obligation to take measures to reduce the risk of crime - such as hiring security guards and subjecting customers to pat-downs for weapons.

When negligent or inadequate security is to blame for failing to prevent a bar shooting or stabbing, the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit against the bar owner. Making this evaluation is complicated and will require guidance from an experienced crime victim lawyer.
