Legal Options of Victims Wounded in Shooting Outside a Club

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville, an experienced violent crime attorney, has represented numerous victims of shootings. Below, Laurence provides his thoughts on the legal options of victims and their families who were shot outside a club:

"A club owner has a legal obligation to ensure the safety of patrons on and around their property. These owners must implement strategies to ensure patrons' safety, such as cameras, guards, and more. Property owners may be deemed liable if crimes occur on their property and they failed to provide adequate security measures."

“When violent crimes occur, they are often the result of negligence on behalf of a third party, such as a property owner. When a crime occurs, a victims' family should question if the establishment did everything possible to prevent the crime. If a crime is deemed reasonably foreseeable, a club owner might be considered negligent. When foreseeable crimes occur, and the property owner may be seen as negligent, victims' families should know they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the club and receive monetary compensation for damages.”
