Can I Sue if Shot Inside a Bar?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard helps victims recover damages when injured from violent crime. As an experienced gun crimes injury attorney, Michael explained when a victim could sue for being shot inside a bar

"Bar owners have an obligation to provide reasonable security for both their patrons and staff. They are required to comply with their state's premises liability laws. These measures can include a well-lit parking lot, properly trained security guards, and working security cameras. When a bar owner fails to provide security in order to reduce the risk of violence, they can be named negligent in a court of law."

"Victims of bar violence injuries, such as shootings, have the legal right to pursue justice. This may be carried out by filing a lawsuit against the perpetrator, but that will unlikely yield the settlement to pay for their damages. If the bar security was lacking during the crime and the crime was found to be foreseeable, the victim may file a case against the bar owner. For a crime to be foreseeable, the owner would need to be aware of an increased risk for violence without fulfilling their duty to increase their security. An increase in security could include coat checks or the use of metal detectors."

"Victims can seek the guidance of an experienced gun crimes injury attorney to determine better if they have grounds to sue a bar owner. The attorney can analyze the incident and identify if they were negligent and could be held liable for the injuries of the bar shooting victims."
