Are Bar Owners Liable for Stabbings and Shootings?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan helps violent crime victims and their families seek the financial compensation they deserve in civil lawsuits. Here is some information from Marc on bar owner liability for violent incidents on their properties:

Bar owners and all other types of property owners have a legal duty to make sure their properties are free from preventable dangers. This includes providing adequate security which can help reduce the risk of foreseeable violent crime. When someone brings a weapon into a bar and commits a shooting or stabbing, it's important to both prosecute the offender and to determine if the bar owner fulfilled their legal duty to keep their premises safe.

In cases where bar owner negligence played a role in failing to prevent a shooting, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit. For example, a bar owner might be considered negligent if their bar had a history of violence but no safety improvements were made, such as hiring security guards.
