Legal Recourse for Victims of Club Shootings

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents crime victims directly as a civil attorney. Here are some of Michael's thoughts regarding the legal options available to club shooting victims and their families:

The owners of bars, nightclubs, strip clubs, and all other types of businesses have a legal duty to make sure their customers and employees are safe from preventable dangers, including foreseeable violent crime. When a shooting happens at a place of business, it's crucial to make sure that the victims get the assistance they need and that the perpetrator is arrested. But it's also important to make sure that the property owner met their legal obligation to guard against foreseeable dangers like violent crime.

For example, a nightclub owner might be considered liable for a shooting if the business had a history of violent incidents but no preventative measures were taken to reduce the risk of future violence - such as hiring security guards and searching guests for weapons upon entry. In cases which involve property owner negligence like inadequate security, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit.

If you or a loved one has been wounded or killed in a bar or nightclub shooting, you may be able to find justice and financial support through the legal system. Consider speaking to an experienced crime victim attorney to learn more about your family's legal options.
