When Are Bar Owners Considered Liable For Shootings?

Attorney contributor Guy D'Andrea is a former criminal prosecutor who now represents crime victims directly in civil courts. We’ve asked Brian to add some insight into bar owner liability for shootings and other violent incidents:

There are many concerns to address in the aftermath of a bar shooting. Along with arresting the shooter and making sure the victims get the full assistance they need, it’s also important to consider how the shooting may have been prevented. Bar owners have a legal responsibility to take preventative measures against foreseeable dangers. If a shooting is determined to have been foreseeable, the bar owner could be considered liable if some form of negligence was to blame for failing to prevent the shooting.

Shooting victims often ask questions such as: Can I sue for being shot?

For example, the owner of a bar in an area with high rates of violent crime might be considered negligent for allowing a shooting to occur if they failed to have security measures in place, such as hired security guards and weapons searches. In cases that involve negligence, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit.

If you or a loved one has been wounded or killed during a shooting at a bar or nightclub, you can learn more about your family’s legal options by speaking to an experienced crime victim attorney.
