LA Bar Shooting Leaves Six Wounded

NBC Los Angeles reported that a gunman opened fire inside the Holiday Bar located at 2471 Whittier Blvd, Los Angeles, CA 90023. 

At around 1 a.m., early Sunday morning, on August 28, 2022, police responded to a call of gunshots fired at the Boyle Heights bar. They arrived to find three injured victims, who were taken to nearby hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries. Later they discovered three more victims with gunshot wounds that arrived at the hospital by personal transportation. 

The investigation determined that a fight broke out inside the crowded bar just before closing time. An individual pulled out a gun and shot into the crowd, injuring the victims; four men and two women. Other bar patrons held the gunman down until law enforcement arrived and took him into custody.

Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Bar?

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson is a shooting victim lawyer representing bar shooting victims in civil lawsuits in the state of California. Bobby recently sat down with Legal Herald to share some legal options available for bar shooting victims, including when they can sue for being shot at a bar

"Bar owners have a legal obligation to keep their staff and patrons safe. Security measures can be put in place to prevent bar shootings. Cameras, bouncers, and sufficient lighting are all keys to basic bar security. Additionally, they would include measures to keep weapons out of their establishment. Victims of bar shootings can often file lawsuits to hold the negligent business owner accountable if they fail to provide ample security."

"If bar owners fail to provide basic security, they can be held liable in a civil suit. If the area was prone to violence or crime, the bar owner would be responsible for making necessary adjustments to their security to reduce the risk of dangers. Shootings that occur despite the bar owner knowing of increased risk could be deemed foreseeable. Bar shooting victims can learn more about their potential lawsuit for compensation by speaking with an experienced shooting victim lawyer."
