Can a Nightclub Be Held Liable for a Fatal Shooting?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan often provides legal aid to the surviving family members of shooting victims. Marc recently discussed when a nightclub could be held liable for a fatal shooting and how to bring a lawsuit against a business for a shooting.

"The owners of bars and nightclubs have a legal responsibility to keep their patrons and employees safe. This can prove to be a tall task given the increased risk of violence due to the consumption of alcohol. In order for nightclub owners to comply with premises liability laws, they need to provide sufficient security in order to reduce the risk of preventable dangers. They should have ample lighting in their parking lots, working surveillance cameras around the property, and trained security personnel. However, if the nightclub owner fails to provide adequate security, they can be held accountable."

"Additionally, if the crime was reasonably foreseeable, the victims or their surviving family members may be able to file a civil lawsuit. For instance, if the area or nightclub was prone to violence, yet no improvements were made to the security, the crime could be considered foreseeable. An attorney may seek to prove that the crime could have been prevented by the addition of metal detectors or by conducting coat checks. Surviving family members should consult with an experienced shooting victim attorney to learn more about their rights for compensation after a fatal nightclub shooting."
