Filing Lawsuits For Hookah Lounge Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has been securing justice for victims of violent crime in Illinois for years as an experienced gun violence attorney. Brian recently discussed when victims or their surviving family members can file a lawsuit following a deadly shooting at a hookah lounge.

"Hookah lounge owners, just like other property owners, have a legal obligation to make the environment safe for their patrons and staff. This can include providing adequate outdoor lighting, fully functional security cameras, and properly trained security personnel. If a property owner's failure to uphold safety precautions leads to an injury or death, they could be held liable in a civil lawsuit."

"If there is a fatal hookah lounge shooting, it is important to examine if more security could have prevented the tragic incident. The hookah lounge owner could be held responsible if they did not take the necessary precautions. Additionally, if the lounge owner knew of an increased risk for violence at the establishment or location, the crime could be deemed foreseeable. Those injured in lounge shootings, or their surviving family members, are encouraged to learn more about the legal options available by speaking with an experienced gun violence attorney."
