Legal Rights of Victims Violently Shot at a Bar

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson has represented numerous victims of shootings in civil lawsuits. Below, Jeff provides insight into the legal rights of victims and their families injured during a shooting on commercial property.

“As a bar owner, there is a legal obligation to protect those on and around your property. To properly protect the patrons on their property, owners should consider implementing safety measures (e.g., cameras and guards). If an owner does not provide proper security and someone is injured on their bar’s property, the owner may be held liable in a court of law.”

“For a property owner to be considered liable, the crime must be considered foreseeable. A crime could be deemed foreseeable if violent crimes have occurred around the bar’s property, and the owner did not make security improvements. If crimes are deemed foreseeable, the victim could file a lawsuit against the owner due to negligence. If the court determines a victim was injured as a result of negligence on behalf of the bar owner, the victim and their family may qualify for monetary compensation.”
