Legal Recourse For Victims of Bar Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent at www.CrimeVictim.Attorney works closely with bar shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has offered to share his insight on the legal options available to victims of bar shootings.

Commercial property owners must keep their properties safe in order to prevent any reasonably foreseeable crime from injuring their patrons or employees. In order to do so, property owners must provide adequate security such as hiring security guards or establishing well-lit parking lots. If a violent crime were to occur on a commercial property due to negligent security, then the owner may be held liable.

Additionally, a violent crime must be considered reasonably foreseeable for the victim to be able to file a lawsuit against the owner. A crime may be seen as reasonably foreseeable if a property had a previous history of violent crime, and no safety improvements were made. Therefore, if a shooting occurs at a bar due to inadequate security and the shooting was deemed reasonably foreseeable, then the owner may be held liable.
