Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan, an experienced violent crimes attorney, licensed in Texas, has represented shooting victims and their families in numerous civil lawsuits. In an interview with Marc, he offers his experience regarding the legal options and rights of victims shot at a club:
"Owners of private property like bars and clubs need to ensure the safety of those paying for their services. These services must include providing a protected environment for all patrons and customers as it is a legal obligation and should be a given. In order for club owners to instill the proper settings and spaces for their businesses, security measures like guards, lighting throughout the premises, and experienced staff are necessary at all times. When injuries happen on club property, the owners and management in some cases can be deemed liable within a civil lawsuit."
"When a crime is deemed as reasonably foreseeable by a court of law, the owner of a club or bar can be considered liable in cases of violent shootings. As crime rates have upticks in specific areas, private property owners must be aware and increase security measures to provide an overall safe environment. If this does not occur and owners make no alterations, crimes on that property would be foreseeable. In such cases, negligence could have overpowered the owner. When negligence cases are brought to the forefront, victims and their families should bring an experienced attorney into play as they may have grounds for a civil lawsuit and receive compensation for damages."
