How Much Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Bar?

Attorney contributor Reed Martens is a shooting victim lawyer representing bar shooting victims in civil lawsuits. Reed recently sat down with Legal Herald to discuss the legal options available for bar shooting victims, including how much victims can recover for being shot at a bar

"Bar and pub owners have a legal responsibility to take reasonable precautions to keep weapons out of their establishment. Bar shootings can often be avoided with sufficient security measures in place. Unfortunately, when we look into bar shooting claims, we generally find that the owner overlooked their security needs. As a result, cases of bar security negligence can be filed. Although financial compensation will not restore health to the injured, it will help hold the negligent business owner accountable."

"When a bar owner fails to provide basic security, such as trained security guards, sufficient lighting, and security cameras, they can be deemed liable in a civil suit. However, many important factors affect the amount each victim might recover from a bar shooting injury. The severity of the injury and the treatment costs are just a couple of examples. By speaking with an experienced shooting victim lawyer, victims can learn more about how much their case may be worth."
