Legal Recourse for Bar Shooting Victims and Their Families

Attorney contributor Jeff Gibson helps bar shooting victims and their families find justice through civil lawsuits. Here are some of his thoughts regarding the legal options available to these victims and families:

The owners of bars, nightclubs, and all other properties have a legal duty to keep their properties safe from preventable hazards, including foreseeable violent crime. When a patron is shot at a bar or nightclub, it’s important to determine if the property owner met this legal duty to keep their property safe. In some bar shooting cases, bar owner negligence (such as inadequate security) is to blame for a failure to prevent the shooting. In these cases, the victims and their families may have grounds for a lawsuit.

If you or a loved one has been wounded or killed in a bar shooting, we understand the difficulties your family faces. To learn more about your legal options, contact our experienced gun crime lawyer for a free consultation.
