Legal Options of Victims Shot at a Bar

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has years of experience representing victims of violent crimes, such as shootings, in civil lawsuits. During a recent interview, Mr. Kent shared some essential concepts in regards to the legal rights of victims shot at a bar

"Bar and nightclub owners must ensure that the entertainment of the establishment is second to the protection of their patrons. Bars owners should implement a level of security measures such as trained security guards and alarms to ensure customers' well-being. When measures are insufficient or just not in place, the security of the property is at risk. Additionally, those visiting the bar are also at risk, and in the event of a violent crime, such as a shooting, victims can hold the bar owners liable in a lawsuit."

"As the neighborhood's crime rates increase, bar owners should enhance their security measures. If they do not, they can be deemed negligent. When cases such as this occur, the crime could be deemed foreseeable. This may allow sufficient grounds for victims to pursue a civil lawsuit against a bar owner due to negligence. The assistance of a reputable violent crimes lawyer can allow the victim and their family to explore legal options. Victims could even receive compensation for damages if the bar owner is found to be at fault."
