Justice For Victims Shot at a Bar

Attorney contributor, Michael Haggard, has had years of experience representing victims of violent crimes and their families in civil lawsuits in Florida. As a gun crime lawyer, Michael recently shared his knowledge regarding the rights of victims shot at a bar and when they can sue for compensation. 

"Bar owners have a legal obligation to ensure that their establishment is safe for both customers and employees. Security measures should be maintained, such as security cameras, professional security guards, and experienced ample lighting. If the bar owner did not provide sufficient security measures at the time of a crime, they might be held liable in a civil case."

"In some situations, bar security negligence can lead to criminal activity such as shootings. The bar owner may be considered negligent if a crime was reasonably foreseeable. If crime rates in the area increased, but they did not improve their security procedures, the crime could be seen as predictable. Victims and their families can seek legal advice from an experienced violent crimes attorney. If the attorney can show that the bar owner was negligent, victims and their families may be entitled to compensation for any losses caused by the crime."
