Legal Recourse for Bar Shooting Victims and Their Families

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents bar shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Here are a few of his thoughts on the legal rights of these victims and families and bar owner liability for shootings.

The owners of bars and nightclubs are responsible for making sure their patrons and employees are safe from preventable dangers. As part of this responsibility, these property owners are required to have reasonable security measures in place, which can reduce the risk of violent crime. When a shooting happens at a bar because of inadequate security or another form of negligence, the victims and their families may have a case for a lawsuit against the bar owner.

For example, if the bar where the shooting occurred had a previous history of violence and no security improvements were made, that bar owner could be held liable if people are injured or killed in a shooting.

Each bar shooting case has different circumstances. In order to understand your family's legal options after you or a loved one has become the victim of a bar shooting, we advise discussing your case with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
