Can a Bar Owner Be Liable for Bar Shootings?

Attorney contributor Paul Bucci represents gun violence victims and families who have lost a loved one in a shooting. Paul helps clients get full compensation for all injuries and damages if shot in a bar. During an interview, he discussed how a bar could be held liable for a shooting death.

"Bars, like other businesses, have a legal obligation to keep their property, including parking lots, safe for patrons and employees. What needs to be done to make their facilities safe depends on a variety of issues, but it usually includes trained security guards, sufficient lighting, and surveillance cameras. When a bar owner fails to keep up with the security of their establishment, they can be held liable for injuries or deaths that occur."

"In the case of bar shootings, the establishment owners can be held liable in a variety of ways. This could include failing to provide adequate security, failing to diffuse an argument as it starts, or knowing and allowing those with known violent tendencies to visit the bar. Additionally, they could be held accountable if the owner was aware of prior violent incidents on the premises and neglected to increase their security measures. Too often, bar shootings could have been prevented with proper security measures in place. Victims or their loved ones can file a lawsuit for compensation under certain circumstances. To determine if a civil lawsuit is the best legal option, the victim can speak with an experienced gun violence attorney."
