Attorney contributor, Marc Lenahan, has a wide range of experience with violent crimes. Because of his representation of victims involved in shootings, Marc is able to comment on the rights of victims shot inside of a club.
"There is a legal obligation to create a safe environment for patrons and those around the property of a bar or club. Owners must do their best to protect their property and those within it. Security measures that can be taken to assure safety are guards, cameras throughout the property/area and prepared staff members. An owner can be seen as liable in a civil lawsuit when a customer is injured on a club's premises."
"When cases involve shootings, if a court of law considers a crime as reasonably foreseeable, the owner of a club can be considered liable. As crime rates continually rise in a specific area, an owner must increase safety measures to provide secure surroundings. If property managers decide not to take these steps, club owners can be deemed as negligent. In negligence cases, the families of victims and victims themselves need to know that they have possible grounds for a civil lawsuit and can receive compensation for damages."
