Filing Lawsuits for Bar Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is a gun victim attorney who has represented bar shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits for years. Marc recently explained some of the requirements for bar shooting victims and their families to file a lawsuit

"Bar owners are legally responsible for ensuring their patrons and employees are safe against preventable violent crime. Fights, shootings, and stabbings often occur at bars and nightclubs, so preventative measures should be in place to reduce the risk of these incidents. Security cameras, sufficient lighting, and trained bouncers are all good preventative measures."

However, when a shooting occurs at a bar injuring, or worse, killing patrons, there should be an investigation into the suspect as well as the bar's security. In some cases, a bar shooting may have occurred due to inadequate security or negligence by the bar owner. In fact, a bar owner could be considered negligent for failing to improve security if it had a history of violence. A civil lawsuit can bring monetary compensation to the victims and their families when a bar owner is deemed negligent. Victims and their families can learn more about the legal options available to them by consulting with an experienced gun victim attorney."
