Can I Sue For Being Shot in a Nightclub Parking Lot?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is a violent crime lawyer in Texas. He represents victims and their families in civil lawsuits for violent crimes, such as shootings. Marc has shared his insight on the common question of if you can sue for being shot in a nightclub parking lot.

"Nightclub and bar owners are legally responsible for ensuring their property is safe from preventable dangers, such as shootings. Visitors should be able to come on to their properties without the risk of suffering preventable injuries. If a property owner fails to take the correct safety precautions, violent crimes may happen on the property due to this neglect. Many times shootings could have been prevented if the property owner had not failed to meet this legal obligation. Preventative measures that could minimize the risk of a shooting might include hired security guards, security monitoring cameras, sufficient lighting, and even by installing metal detectors."

"If previous shootings or other instances of violent crimes occurred at the same location, the nightclub owner would be responsible for increasing safety. This might include having security guards pat down guests for weapons. Although the victim may have reasonable grounds for a lawsuit against the shooter, it's more common to file against a negligent third party, such as the property owner. It is recommended to seek an experienced violent crime lawyer to guide victims and their families with the support they need."
