Can I Sue a Bar Owner For a Shooting?

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson is a crime victim lawyer who represents victims of bar shootings in civil lawsuits. Jeff has provided some of his knowledge on if a bar owner can be held liable for a shooting

"Bar owners must take the safety of their patrons and staff seriously. With many instances of violence at a bar, bar owners have a legal duty to do what they can to secure their properties from the threat of preventable shootings and stabbings. If people are injured or killed in a bar shooting, an investigation can determine if the shooting was preventable. Victims and their families can inquire if the bar owners fulfilled their duty of care and offered sufficient safety measures. This could include hired security guards, adequate lighting, and security monitoring cameras."

"Unfortunately, many bar shootings happen as a result of negligence by the bar owner. Foreseeability is a significant factor in determining whether a shooting occurred due to negligence. An example could include if the bar had previous violent incidents yet failed to improve security. This could cause the shooting to be considered foreseeable, and the bar owner could be held liable in a bar shooting lawsuit based on their negligence. Victims and their families can learn more about their legal rights and options by consulting with experienced shooting victim lawyers."
