Can You Sue For Being Shot Inside a Bar? 

Attorney contributor Brian Kent regularly represents gun violence victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Brian sat down with Legal Herald and explained some of the legal rights and options available for victims, including their right to sue a negligent bar owner for gunshot injuries

"Bar and nightclub owners are legally obliged to create a safe environment for both their patrons and staff. As stated by law, it is necessary to provide adequate security to prevent foreseeable violent crime, such as shootings and stabbings. By hiring security guards and providing well-lit parking lots, a bar can reduce the risk of preventable crime. However, if proper security is neglected, then a property owner may be found liable for injuries resulting from violence sustained on the property." 

"The violent crime victim's attorney will try to prove that the crime was reasonably foreseeable. When a bar owner knows about violence in the area, like a shooting, but does not improve security measures and someone gets hurt, the property owner may be held liable for the crime. If reasonably foreseeable crime injures or kills someone due to inadequate security, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner and even be entitled to financial compensation. Victims and their families should seek the counsel of an experienced gun violence attorney to go over their legal options."
