Legal Options for Victims Shot at a Bar

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson is an experienced violent crimes lawyer who represents victims and their families in civil suits. During a recent interview, Mr. Gibson provided his insight to help victims determine if they can sue when shot at a bar

"Bar owners have a legal responsibility to uphold the safety of their customers and staff. They must provide a sufficient level of security to ensure this safety. For example, the property should have surveillance cameras, hired security guards, and even proper lighting. If the crime was seen as foreseeable, the bar owner could be found negligent."

A crime is considered reasonably foreseeable if preventable measures could have prevented it. One example includes if the area's crime was steadily increasing and yet the owner did not add to their property's security. Victims should first acquire the counsel of an experienced violent crimes lawyer. A victim may have reason to file a case if their lawyer can prove the crime was foreseeable and the property owner has exemplified a form of neglect where the premice's security is concerned."
