Legal Recourse For Victims of Bar Shootings and Their Families
Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents bar shooting victims in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has offered to share his knowledge on the legal options open to these victims and their families.
It is important for every commercial property owner to fulfill their legal duty of keeping anyone who visits their properties safe from preventable dangers. In order to do so, property owners must provide adequate security on their premises. This may include hiring security guards or installing video surveillance. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security, and a shooting occurs due to the negligent security, then the victims may have a lawsuit against the property owner.
Not only must the violent crime be caused by inadequate security, but it must be considered reasonably foreseeable. An example of a reasonably foreseeable violent crime would be if a shooting occurred at a bar with a prior history of criminal violence, yet no security improvements were established. In general, if a reasonably foreseeable violent crime happens at a bar because of inadequate security, then the property owner may be held liable.
If you or someone you love has experienced something similar to this, it is best to discuss your case with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
