Two Injured in Downtown Bar Shooting

Trib Live has reported that a shooting occurred outside of the Rialto Bar and Bistro located at 25 W Otterman St, Greensburg, PA 15601. 

Two men were shot exiting the bar just before 2 a.m. Sunday, January 30, 2022. The gunfire was said to spray the area with over a dozen shots. Detectives had determined that an argument inside the bar led to the shooting. They believe the shooter may have waited outside the venue for over an hour before his target came out. The other unintentional victim used a cane to walk and was unable to take cover when the gunfire began.

Both victims were transported to the hospital for treatment. The targeted victim is undergoing surgery after being shot in both legs.

Justice For Bar Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Brian Kent often represents clients involved in violent crimes in private civil litigation. He explained the various legal options available to bar shooting victims during a recent discussion. He highlighted when victims of bar shootings can sue to obtain compensation.

"Bars and nightclub owners have a legal responsibility to ensure that their property is free of all foreseeable or known dangers. They have an obligation to keep their customers and employees safe, including from violence such as shootings. This can include safety measures such as ample lighting, hired security, and surveillance cameras. If a customer or employee suffers injuries due to the owner's negligence, the victims might have grounds to file a lawsuit."

"If the bar owner fails to take reasonable steps to protect their customers, they can be considered negligent. Additionally, if the crime was foreseeable, the bar owner can be liable for damages. If the establishment had issues of ongoing violence but failed to offer additional security, they would be deemed negligent and may be held accountable for damages to the victims."

"Victims can best explore their legal options with an experienced violent crimes attorney. Financial compensation may be recovered when they file a private civil lawsuit."
