Justice For Victims of Hookah Lounge Shootings

Attorney contributor Kristen Beightol is an experienced shooting victims attorney in North Carolina. She recently discussed the legal rights available for victims of hookah lounge shootings.

"The duty of a hookah lounge to provide security and prevent the risk of shootings in and around their property is one that must be taken seriously. Hookah lounges must make sure they are taking adequate steps to prevent shootings, such as having adequate lighting, security cameras, and security personnel present. Further, they must be aware of any foreseeable risks of violence, such as gang activity, and take steps to prevent them. If the hookah lounge owner is found to have neglected its legal obligation, they could be held liable in a civil lawsuit."

"Legal rights are available for those who have been shot, injured, or killed in a hookah lounge parking lot. Victims of gun violence have the right to seek compensation through a personal injury lawsuit for medical costs, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other damages. Further, the family members of victims of fatal shootings have the right to seek compensation through a wrongful death lawsuit for funeral expenses, loss of companionship, and other damages."

"No amount of money can ever replace a loved one or make up for the physical and emotional pain of being shot and injured. But it is important to remember that victims of gun violence and their families have legal rights and can seek compensation for their losses. An experienced shooting victims attorney can guide victims and their families to get the justice they deserve."
