Can I File a Lawsuit For Being Shot at a Bar?

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan represents bar shooting victims in Texas. As an experienced gun crimes injury attorney, Marc offers legal assistance to help victims and their families recover their rightfully deserved financial compensation. Recently he discussed when victims and their families could file a lawsuit for being shot in a bar

"The prevention of foreseeable violent crime should be a priority for bar and other business owners. Unfortunately, bars and nightclubs can have a greater risk of violence due to alcohol consumption. It is necessary they take proper preventative measures to reduce the risk of violent crime, such as shootings. This could include having security cameras around the property, hiring trained security guards, and keeping a well-lit environment. Failure to provide a level of security can lead to the bar owner being deemed negligent in a court of law."

"When shootings occur at a bar and patrons or staff are injured or killed, the shooting should be investigated. Not only is it important to identify and charge the suspect, but it is critical to determine if sufficient safety precautions were in place to deter violence. Too often, bar shootings could have been prevented if the bar owner was implementing better safety measures."

"Negligent security can allow bar owners to be held liable for foreseeable crimes, such as shootings. If the bar or location had a history of violence or criminal activity, the owner would be obligated to improve safety in order to reduce the risk of further violence. The bar owner may achieve this by conducting weapons searches and hiring additional security guards. However, if they made no safety improvements, the property owner could be deemed negligent and held responsible in a civil lawsuit filed by the victims and their families."

"To best determine if a bar shooting victim, or their family, has grounds to pursue a lawsuit against a bar, they should contact an experienced gun crimes injury attorney. They can analyze the circumstances and suggest the best legal options available to recover compensation and seek the justice victims deserve."
