Legal Rights of Bar Shooting Victims

Attorney contributor Marc Lenahan is a crime victim attorney who represents sports bar shooting victims in civil lawsuits. Marc recently sat down with Legal Herald to discuss the legal options available for shooting victims, including filing a lawsuit against negligent bar owners

"Safety should always be a priority for owners of establishments such as sports bars and nightclubs. In fact, all property owners have a legal responsibility to keep their properties reasonably safe from preventable dangers, including foreseeable violent crime. However, with a reputation of violence occurring, providing preventative measures such as sufficient lighting, security cameras, and even hired security guards is more critical. In the event that a bar shooting occurs and patrons or staff are injured, an investigation should determine if the bar owner upheld their legal duty."

"Unfortunately, some bar shootings occur due to inadequate security or other forms of negligence by the bar owner. For instance, if crime in the area was on the rise and the owner failed to increase the property's security, and a crime took place, it could be deemed foreseeable. The bar owner could even be held liable in a private civil suit. Victims and their families are encouraged to discuss their legal rights with an experienced crime victim attorney. Compensation may be available for some cases involving negligence."
