Legal Rights of Victims Shot at a Bar

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea, an experienced violent crime lawyer, has represented numerous victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. We asked Brian to provide insight on the rights of victims wounded during a shooting.

“Bar owners have a legal obligation to uphold the safety of those on or around their property. To provide a safe environment for patrons, bar owners should consider security cameras, strong lighting, and guards. If a bar owner does not provide proper security, and someone is injured on their property, they may be held liable.”

“A bar owner may be considered liable if the crime is deemed foreseeable. For example, if a previous crime happened in or around the bar, but there was no increase in security measures. In this case, the bar owner would be considered negligent, increasing potential liability. In negligence cases, victims and their families should know they may have grounds for a lawsuit and receive monetary compensation.”
