Legal Recourse For Victims of Violence at Bars and Clubs

Attorney Marc Lenahan would like to add some general information on bar owner liability for shootings in bars and nightclubs:

In any shooting or stabbing case, the top priority is always finding and prosecuting the perpetrator. While seeing the perpetrator brought to justice can help bring relief to victims and their families, the criminal justice system doesn't always adequately address the needs of victims and the loved ones of those victims who are killed in violent incidents.

When these incidents occur at bars and nightclubs, we should also ask if the establishment was at fault for failing to prevent the crime due to negligence. In some cases, inadequate security or another form of negligence is partially to blame for violent incidents.

Determining if a bar owner is liable for a violent incident is a complicated process. If you're curious about your family's legal rights after you or a loved one was wounded or killed in a shooting at a bar or nightclub, we advise discussing your case with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
