Can Surviving Relatives Sue For Fatal Shooting at Sports Bar?

Attorney contributor to the Legal Herald, Marc Lenahan, often helps the surviving family of victims fatally shot or stabbed get compensation for their loss. Recently Marc explained various legal options available for those mourning the death of victims fatally shot at a sports bar.

"Sports bar property owners have taken on a legal responsibility to ensure the safety of their patrons and staff. These property owners are bound by the same premises liability laws as other commercial property owners. In order to reduce the risk of preventable dangers, such as shootings and stabbings, a sports bar should have a well-lit parking lot, an ample number of security cameras, and well-trained security personnel. If the owner falls short of maintaining its security and someone is injured, they may risk being served with a private civil lawsuit filed under the legal guidance of a lawyer representing the shooting victim or their family."

"The experienced lawyer will gather evidence to prove the incident was a result of the sports bar owner's negligence. If the shooting was reasonably foreseeable, there might be sufficient grounds to file a lawsuit, and the bar owner could be liable for damages. If criminal activity was on the rise in the area, yet the owner did not make improvements to its security, they could be deemed negligent and the crime foreseeable. Each incident is unique, and how much settlement can be recovered may vary."
