Are Venue Owners Liable For Violent Incidents?

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson would like to add some info on premises liability for violent incidents at event spaces:

Keeping guests and customers safe should be a top priority for any business owner. This is especially true for the owners of event complexes, as violent incidents with such large gatherings of people could easily result in multiple casualties. Property owners have a legal duty to do their best to protect their property from preventable dangers, which includes violent crime in some cases.

Victims of such crimes often ask, “Can I sue for being shot?

In order for a crime victim to have grounds for a lawsuit against a property owner, the victim’s legal team will need to prove that the owner was aware (or reasonably should have been aware) of the risk of violent crime at their property, but that they did nothing to reduce that risk. For example, if a club has a history of violence, the owner could install security cameras, hire security guards, and require guests to be searched for weapons.

Determining if a property owner is liable for a violent incident is complicated. If you want to better understand your potential legal options as the victim of violent crime, we recommend speaking with an experienced crime victim lawyer.
