Legal Options of Victims and Their Families of Shootings Outside a Club

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard is an experienced violent crimes attorney who has represented numerous shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. During an interview, Michael shared some information on the legal rights of victims shot outside of a club:

"A gentlemen's club, similar to a bar, must put the safety of the patrons and staff as the highest priority. The establishment's owner has a legal duty to maintain certain security measures are in place in order to secure the safety of their customers and staff. Examples of such security measures can include hiring security guards, having well-lit parking lots, installing working security cameras, and even offering proper training for staff. If a certain level of security has not been put in place and a crime takes place on the premice, the victim and their family may have a legal right to pursue a civil lawsuit against the club or bar." 

"Club owners and management may be considered negligent if the offense is found to be foreseeable. A foreseeable crime could include the lack of increasing security measures even though the owner and management are aware of the increase in crime in the area. A victim and their family should seek the counsel of an experienced violent crimes attorney to understand better their legal options, including if they have grounds for a civil lawsuit."
