Can I Sue If I Was Shot at a Hookah Lounge?

For years, attorney contributor Marc Lenahan has fought to ensure that victims of violent crime receive justice. During an interview, Marc outlined when victims and their families can sue if they were shot at a hookah lounge.

"Both patrons and employees of hookah bars have the legal right to be reasonably safe while they are on the premises. If a violent crime such as a shooting occurs, victims should look into the amount of security offered by the establishment. This could involve checking that the hookah lounge owner provided sufficient lighting, surveillance cameras, and well-trained security bouncers to reduce the risk of preventable crime. The lounge owner could be held accountable if they neglected security precautions."

"Victims and their families may be entitled to seek monetary compensation by bringing a lawsuit against the hookah club owner if negligence was involved and the crime was found to be foreseeable. The crimes committed could be regarded as foreseeable if the owner fails to increase their security while knowing of an increase in violence in the area. Victims and their families are encouraged to speak with a shooting victim attorney to learn more about their legal options for suing a negligent hookah lounge owner."
