Can a Bar Be Held Liable for Fatal Bar Shootings?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents shooting victims and their families in bar shooting lawsuits in Texas. During a recent discussion, Marc shared when a bar could be held liable for a fatal bar shooting.

"Bar owners are required to provide sufficient security in order to comply with premises liability laws. These laws are to protect the staff and patrons from dangers, especially at establishments where alcohol is consumed. Basic security measures often include ample lighting in the parking lots, security cameras inside and around the property, and properly trained security guards. These measures are to reduce the risk of preventable dangers, such as bar shootings. The bar owner can be deemed negligent if they fail to provide enough security."

"The victims of a bar shooting may be able to file a lawsuit against the bar owner if the crime was reasonably foreseeable. The crime could be seen as predictable if the bar owner had failed to improve its security despite knowing that criminal activity in the area was increasing. Updated security could involve hiring security personnel or installing metal detectors. The surviving family members of victims fatally shot at a bar should learn more about their rights by consulting with an experienced shooting victim attorney."
