Filing a Lawsuit For Bar Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has been representing bar shooting victims and their families for years in the state of Pennsylvania. Brian is an experienced bar shooting victim lawyer and has offered to share some of the legal options available to victims and their families.

"It is crucial that bar owners prioritize the safety at their establishments. Unfortunately, fights, shootings, stabbings, and other violent crimes happen regularly at bars and nightclubs across the country. Knowing this, it is necessary for bar owners to provide a higher level of safety for their staff and patrons. This can entail the property owner hiring security personnel, installing security cameras, and providing ample lighting in the parking lot areas. Failure to focus on the property's security could cause the bar owner to be found negligent."

"When a violent crime occurs at a bar leaving victims injured or killed, the victims and their families need to understand their legal rights. Often, these incidents occur as a result of safety negligence by the property owner. If the property has a history of prior violent crime, the property owner would be responsible for improving security standards. However, they can be considered negligent if they fail to do so. In negligence cases, bar shooting victims and their families could have grounds to pursue a civil lawsuit. Victims and their families should consult with an experienced bar shooting victim lawyer to explore their legal options, which may include financial compensation."
