When Are Bar Owners Liable for Shootings on Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents victims of preventable bar shootings in civil lawsuits. We've asked Marc to add some information on bar owner liability for shootings on their premises:

The owner of bars, nightclubs, and all other types of businesses have a legal obligation to protect their customers, employees, and other visitors to their properties from foreseeable dangers. In some cases, bar shootings may be considered a foreseeable danger. Bar shooting victims may have grounds for a lawsuit if the shooting is deemed foreseeable and the property owner failed to adequately safeguard their property from the risk of foreseeable violent crime.

For example, a bar owner might be considered negligent if their bar had a history of violence but no efforts were made to improve security, such as hiring security guards who could conduct weapons searches before guests enter the bar.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a bar shooting, we understand the many difficulties your family is facing and we want to help. Consider contacting one of our experienced crime victim attorneys to learn more about your family's legal options.
