Can Victims Injured in Bar Shootings File Lawsuits?

Attorney contributor Paul Bucci represents bar shooting victims and their families, helping them get the financial compensation they rightfully deserve. Recently, Paul shared some information regarding the legal rights of injured victims, including when victims injured in pub shootings could file a civil lawsuit. 

"Unfortunately, bars and pubs have a reputation for having a higher rate of crime than other types of establishments. It is the duty of a pub owner to maintain a level of preventative security measures to reduce violent crime, like shootings. Therefore, if a shooting occurs on the premises of the pub, causing victims to be hurt or killed, law enforcement should examine the incident properly. Identifying and apprehending any suspects is only one element of the investigation. It's critical to also look into the security measures implemented by the pub owner to see if the incident could have been prevented. Failure for a pub owner to offer precautions such as hired bouncers, working security cameras, and sufficient lighting could cause the owner to be deemed negligent."

"Many times, pub shootings could have been prevented by additional security. In fact, if a bar or pub has a history of crime, the owner would be responsible for increasing their efforts to secure the safety of their property. A lawsuit could be filed if a shooting is determined to be the result of a pub owner's security negligence. Victims and their family should discuss their potential case with an experienced crime victim lawyer to learn more about their legal rights."
