Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Bar?

Marc Lenahan is a crime victim lawyer who represents bar shooting victims, helping them recover the financial compensation they deserve. Marc has offered to add some legal commentary regarding lawsuits for bar shootings:

Prevention of violent crime should be a top priority for all bar owners. Sadly, bars and nightclubs are often the sites of violence, as heavy alcohol consumption can lead to confrontations. Preventative measures can help reduce the risk of violent crime happening at bars and nightclubs.

When gunshots are fired at a bar and people are injured and killed, all of the circumstances surrounding the shooting should be investigated. It's important not only to identify and arrest a suspect, but also to investigate the bar to determine if adequate safety standards were in place. Many bar shootings could be prevented by better safety standards.

In some cases, bar owners are liable for failing to prevent shootings. For example, if there had been previous violence at the bar, the owner would have an obligation to improve safety to reduce the risk of further violence through measures like weapons searches and security guards. If no safety improvements were made, the bar owner could be considered negligent and held liable in a civil lawsuit by the victims and their families.
