Can Property Owners Be Liable For Crime on Their Premises?
Brian Kent of crimevictim.Attorney represents bar shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits.
For bar owners, keeping their properties safe is a responsibility that must always be met. This includes providing adequate security measures in order to reduce the risk of violent crimes like shootings and stabbings. If a violent crime occurs in a restaurant/bar that could have been prevented by better security measures, then victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit against the bar owner.
In general, in order for a bar owner to be held liable, a shooting must be considered reasonably foreseeable. For instance, this could be the case if the bar had a history of previous violent crime and the owner made no efforts to improve the security. Ways to strengthen security include installing metal detectors and security cameras, as well as hiring security guards.
