Can Bar Shooting Victims File Lawsuits?

Attorney contributor Reed Martens has offered to add some insight into the legal options available to bar shooting victims and their families:

When gunfire erupts inside or outside of a bar, nightclub, or other business, there are many concerns to address. Obviously, finding and arresting the shooter is the top priority. But in the aftermath of a shooting, we should also ask if a lack of proper security played a role in the incident.

Bar owners, along with all other property owners, have a legal duty to keep their premises safe from preventable dangers. This includes making sure the property is reasonably secure from the risk of violent crime. In cases where negligent or inadequate security failed to prevent a violent crime, those who have been injured in the crime, along with the families of those killed, may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner.

Establishing negligence for a bar shooting is a complicated process. In order to learn more about your legal options as the victim of a bar shooting, we advise speaking with an experienced crime victim attorney.
