Are Bar Owners Liable For Shootings and Stabbings?

Here is Marc Lenahan with some discussion on property owner liability in shootings and stabbings:

While some acts of violence are completely random and unpredictable, other violent incidents could have been prevented if the property owner had taken preventative measures.

In situations where a shooting happens at a bar, restaurant, or other business in an area with high rates of violent crime, it's important to ask if the property owner did all that they could to minimize the risk of violence for their customers. For example, if a bar has a history of violence, ownership could hire security guards and have them search guests for weapons before entering the bar.

If negligent security enabled a violent crime to occur, the victim and their family could have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner. Additionally, dram shop laws in Texas and many other states allow victims of bar violence to file lawsuits if the perpetrator(s) became violent because they were served too much alcohol.

If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a violent incident at a bar, restaurant, or other business, we advise speaking with an experienced crime victim lawyer about your legal options.
