Are Bar Owners Liable For Shootings and Stabbings?

Attorney contributor Paul Bucci helps the victims of bar shootings find justice and financial compensation in civil lawsuits. We've asked him to share some insight into bar owner liability for shootings and other violent incidents at bars and nightclubs:

Bar owners, like all other property owners, have a legal duty to make sure all those who visit their property are safe from reasonably foreseeable dangers, including violent crime. Preventative measures like hired security guards, weapons searches, and metal detectors can help reduce the risk of violent crime. When a shooting, stabbing, or another violent incident occurs at a bar, it's important to determine if the bar owner is liable for failure to meet their legal duty to safety.

In cases where inadequate security or another form of bar owner negligence allowed a violent crime to occur, the victims and their families may have the right to file a lawsuit against the property owner. If you or a loved one is the victim of a bar or nightclub shooting or stabbing, consider speaking to an experienced crime victim attorney about your family's legal options.
