When Is A Bar Owner Liable For Violence?

Jeff Gibson has some thoughts to add on property owner liability for shootings, stabbings, and other violent crimes:

It’s no secret that the United States has a major problem with gun violence. Shootings and stabbings in public places have unfortunately become commonplace in recent years. This means that it’s important for property owners to make sure they’ve done all that they can to keep their premises safe from the risk of violent crime. This is especially true in areas or venues with a history of violent incidents.

When a shooting or stabbing happens at a bar, nightclub, restaurant, or another business, the property owner could be held liable if the risk of violent crime was foreseeable and the property owner failed to adequately protect the property from these risks. For example, a victim of a bar shooting could have grounds for a lawsuit against the bar owner if a lack of proper security allowed the shooting to occur.

Determining if a property owner can be held liable for a violent incident is a complex process and depends on the specific circumstances of a case. Crime victims and their families should consider speaking with an experienced gun crimes injury lawyer to determine if they could have grounds for a premises liability lawsuit.
