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

Attorney contributor, Michael Haggard, an experienced violent crimes lawyer, has represented many shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. In an interview, Michael delivers information on the legal rights of victims harmed outside of a club:

"The entertainment of a club or bar must come second to the safe environment and protection owners must provide for their patrons. They have a legal obligation to ensure their property is a secure place to be for their customers and employees. In order to do this, owners and management must have proper security measures in place, including guards, attentive staff and reliable lighting throughout the premises. As crimes can often be committed at clubs, victims' families should do their research and question if the facility was prepared and safe for people. A victim's family could possibly have grounds for a civil lawsuit against the club if a lawyer could prove that institution had not taken the necessary steps to guarantee security for all."

"The management or owners of clubs may be considered liable for any violent crimes that happened on their property due to negligence if the offense is deemed as foreseeable. An example of this would be crime rates continue to rise in a particular area, but no changes are made to a bar or club's security practices. By securing the services of an experienced violent crimes attorney, victims and their families have the opportunity to see whether the crime involved negligence on behalf of the owner. With cases surrounding negligence, the family of a victim may have grounds for a civil lawsuit."
