Legal Rights of Victims Shot at a Restaurant

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville, an experienced violent crime lawyer, represents victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. We asked Laurence to provide commentary on the rights of victims injured during a shooting. Below is his insight:

Do restaurant owners have an obligation to protect patrons?

“Restaurant owners are legally obligated to uphold the safety of patrons on or around their property. Bar owners should consider implementing preventative measures (e.g., security cameras and guards). If a bar owner does not provide the proper security to protect patrons, and someone is injured on their property, the owner may be held liable.”

Can a victim sure a restaurant owner for damages?

“A bar owner may be considered liable if the crime is deemed reasonably foreseeable. For example, if previous crimes occurred in or around the restaurant, but the owner did not increase the security measures. In such cases, the restaurant owner would be considered negligent. In cases of negligence, victims and their families should know they may have grounds for a lawsuit and obtain the services of an experienced violent crime attorney.”
