Legal Recourse For Victims of Bar Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents victims of preventable violent crime in civil lawsuits. Here is some general info from Brian regarding the legal options available to bar shooting victims and their families:

Being a bar owner is a big responsibility, and with this responsibility comes the legal duty to make sure the property is safe from foreseeable dangers. Providing a reasonable standard of security is critical in order to make sure customers, employees, and other visitors are reasonably safe from the threat of violent crime. While not all cases of bar violence are reasonably foreseeable, some bar shootings may have been prevented if it weren’t for inadequate or negligent security.

In cases of negligence, bar shooting victims and their families could have grounds for a lawsuit against the bar owner. For example, a bar owner might be considered negligent if the bar had a history of violence, but no efforts were made to improve security – such as hiring security guards.

Establishing negligence for a bar shooting is a complicated legal process which will likely require assistance from an experienced crime victim attorney. You can learn more about your legal options as a victim of a bar shooting by contacting one of our attorneys for a free consultation.
