Are Nightclub Owners Liable for Shootings on Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents crime victims and their families in civil lawsuits, helping them fight for the financial compensation they deserve. We've asked Michael to share some thoughts on nightclub owner liability for shootings on their properties:

All property owners have a legal duty to make sure their properties are reasonably secure from the threat of violent crime. When a shooting happens at a bar or nightclub, it's important to determine if the property venue met this legal duty to protect the safety of their customers and employees. In some cases, these shootings may have been prevented by better security standards, such as security guards and mandatory weapons searches of customers.

In cases where inadequate security or another form of property owner negligence played a role in a nightclub shooting, the victims and their families may have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit against the property owner. Our experienced crime victim attorneys can help you learn more about your family's legal options following a bar or nightclub shooting - feel free to get in touch with us for a free consultation.
