Bar Owner Liability For Shootings and Stabbings

Kevin Biniazan represents the victims of preventable violent crime. We’ve asked him to share some thoughts on bar owner liability for shootings and stabbings:

In Virginia and all other states, property owners have a legal obligation to keep their customers, guests, and residents safe from reasonably preventable dangers. Protecting against the risk of violent crime is part of this obligation. When a shooting or stabbing occurs at a bar, nightclub, or another place of business, it’s important both to arrest and prosecute the offenders and to determine if property owner negligence played a role in the incident.

While not all of these incidents are reasonably preventable, some may have been stopped if it weren’t for negligent or inadequate security measures. Property owners can reduce their risk of violent crime by addressing security. An example would be hiring security guards who could search customers for weapons before they enter the bar.

If you or someone you love has been wounded or killed in a violent incident at a bar or nightclub, it’s important to be aware of your legal options. You can learn more by discussing your case with an experienced crime victim lawyer regarding a possible gunshot settlement.
