How Much Can I Sue for Being Shot at a Bar?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is a shooting victim lawyer experienced in representing victims of bar shootings in civil lawsuits. Bobby has recently provided insight on when a bar owner can be held liable for a shooting

"Bar owners have a legal obligation to make the safety of their patrons and staff a priority. Too often, violence is a problem at bars, and bar owners have a duty to ensure the properties are secure from the threat of preventable violent crimes, such as shootings. When people are injured or killed in a bar shooting, it's essential to determine whether the shooting was preventable. Bar owners can minimize the risk of violent crimes by having security cameras, sufficient lighting, and well-trained security guards on the property."

"Unfortunately, many bar shootings take place due to negligence on behalf of the bar owner. Foreseeability plays a huge factor in determining whether a shooting happened due to negligence. If the area or bar had issues with increasing violence without increasing their security measures, the shooting might be deemed foreseeable. This lack of property security could lead to the bar owner being held liable in a bar shooting lawsuit due. An experienced shooting victim lawyer would be able to guide the victim and their family with the right legal option. Each incident is unique and compensation will vary depending on the circumstances."
