Filing Lawsuits For Victims Shot in a Nightclub

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville is an experienced gun crime lawyer who works with shooting victims in private civil lawsuits. Recently Laurence discussed the legal right of victims shot at a nightclub to file a lawsuit against a negligent property owner. 

"Property owners, including nightclub owners, have a legal obligation to protect both the patrons and staff on and around their property. In order to ensure this safety, the nightclub owner should offer safety measures that reduce the risk of preventable dangers, such as stabbings and shootings. Proper security measures often include security cameras, hired security guards, and sufficient lighting. If adequate security is not provided on the property, injured victims might have grounds to file a civil lawsuit based on security negligence."

"To file a civil lawsuit, the victim's lawyer will need to prove that the case was a result of a reasonably foreseeable crime. This can include if the property owner was aware of a heightened risk of violence yet did nothing to step up security to prevent it. Additional security measures can include coat checks and metal detectors. The owner may be considered negligent and even liable for victims' injuries in foreseeable cases. Victims of nightclub shootings are encouraged to secure an experienced gun crime lawyer's services in order to recover any possible compensation for their damages."
