When Are Bar Owners Considered Liable For Shootings?

Brian Kent is a former criminal prosecutor who now represents crime victims in civil lawsuits. We’ve asked Brian to share some thoughts on bar owner liability for shootings and other violent incidents:

When gunfire erupts at a bar or nightclub and innocent people are injured or killed, there are many concerns to address in the aftermath. It’s crucial to investigate the shooting and arrest the shooter and to make sure the victims get all of the medical attention and support they need. Additionally, it’s important to determine if the bar owner is partially responsible for failing to protect their property from the risk of reasonably foreseeable violent crime.

Bar owners and all other property owners have a legal duty to keep their properties safe. In some bar shooting cases, the violence could have been prevented if the bar owner had met this legal duty. For example, a bar owner might be considered negligent for failing to have security measures in place, such as security guards, to reduce the risk of violent crime. However, this only applies in cases where the shooting can be considered reasonably foreseeable – such as at a bar with a history of previous violent incidents.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed during a bar shooting, we understand the difficulties your family is facing. You can learn more about your family’s legal rights by speaking to an experienced gun crimes injury lawyer.
