Legal Rights of Victims Shot at a Bar

Attorney contributor Laurence Banville has represented numerous victims of violent crimes in civil lawsuits. Below, we asked Laurence to provide commentary on the legal options of victims shot at a bar. He offered the following:

“Bar owners are obligated legally to uphold the safety of those on or around their property. Property owners must provide adequate safety measures to ensure the safety of patrons. Examples of security measures are security cameras and well-lit parking lots and courtyards, but there are more. If proper security is not provided both on and around the property, and someone is injured, the bar owner may be considered liable for the damages.”

“In order for a victim to have a case, the crime must be deemed foreseeable. If the crime is considered foreseeable, then the property owner may be held liable. An example of a foreseeable crime would be an increase in crime in the neighborhood, but the property owner did not increase security measures. Victims and their family should know, in these cases, they may have grounds for a lawsuit. If a victim’s lawyer can prove that the crime was a result of the inadequate protection on behalf of the property owner, then they may receive monetary compensation for damages.”
