Filing Lawsuits For Family of Fatal Nightclub Shootings

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents the surviving family members of a fatal nightclub shooting victim. Marc offered to detail when families can sue a nightclub for a fatal shooting

"By law, owners of commercial property, such as nightclubs, must take reasonable steps to prevent putting patrons and staff in harm's way on their property. The risks of a patron being injured can be reduced when adequate security measures are in place. These provisions may include trained security officials, well-lit parking lots, and surveillance cameras. Too often, nightclub owners ignore their property security needs. In these cases of neglect, the owner can be held accountable for their injury or death."

"When a nightclub owner is aware of an increase in risk for their patrons and staff, they are responsible for taking added steps to ensure their safety. This may include conducting weapons checks and metal detectors."

"Victims or the surviving family members with the guidance of an experienced attorney will have to prove that the incident was reasonably foreseeable and the nightclub owner was negligent. Violent crime attorneys are dedicated to maximizing the financial recovery and obtaining justice for the victims and their families."
