Legal Rights of Bar Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson, an experienced violent crime attorney, represents victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. Jeff provided his insight about the rights of victims wounded during a shooting on commercial property.

“Bar and restaurant owners are obligated to uphold the safety of those on or around their property. To ensure the safety of their customers, property owners must provide adequate security and preventative measures. Examples of preventative security measures include security cameras, well-lit parking lots, or security guards. If proper security is not provided, and someone is injured on a bar or restaurant’s property, the property owner may be held liable.”

“If a crime is considered foreseeable, a property owner could be considered liable. For example, a crime could be considered foreseeable if previous violent crimes occurred on or around the bar or restaurant’s property, and there were no security improvements. In these cases, a victim and their family should know they may have grounds for a lawsuit. If the court decides a victim was injured because of inadequate protection on behalf of the property owner, the victim, and their family may qualify for monetary compensation.”
