Legal Options Available to Victims of Bar Shootings

Attorney contributor Brian Kent represents bar shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Mr. Kent has offered to share his legal expertise on these matters and compensation for gunshot victims.

Commercial property owners are bound by the law to provide safety to their visitors and to prevent foreseeable dangers from occurring on site. To do so, property owners must provide adequate security, which may include things like security guards, video surveillance, and other policies to ensure the welfare of their customers. A lawsuit against a property owner may arise when the owner fails to provide adequate security and then a shooting occurs due to the owner’s negligence.

Nevertheless, a suit will only be valid against a property owner if the violent crime is considered to have been reasonably foreseeable in addition to resulting from inadequate security. An example of a reasonably foreseeable violent crime would be if a shooting occurred at a bar where previous episodes of violence erupted and no preventative efforts were taken by the owner. Ultimately, if inadequate security prompts a reasonably foreseeable violent crime to occur on a property owner’s site, he or she may be held liable.

If you or someone you love has been a victim of a bar shooting, you can learn more about your legal options by discussing your case with an experienced crime victim attorney.
