Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Beach Club?

Attorney contributor Kevin Biniazan is a violent crime attorney representing shooting victims in civil lawsuits in Virginia. Recently Kevin sat down with us to answer when victims can sue for being shot at a beach club.

"Property owners, including event venues, have a legal obligation to protect their properties from preventable threats like shootings. This duty is to reduce the dangers that may cause guests to get injured in violent situations. Tragic occurrences such as shootings and other violent crimes may not occur if a commercial property owner takes sufficient safety procedures. These precautions can include security surveillance cameras, hired security, and ample lighting."

"Victims may have lawful rights to sue the shooter directly, but they may be able to file a negligent security claim against a third party. Property owners may be held accountable for shootings that occur on or near their property if they have failed to take adequate security precautions. Additionally, if a crime had been increasing in the area, the owner would be held responsible for adding to its security. Victims and their families should obtain legal guidance from an experienced shooting victim attorney to determine the best legal options."
