CBS LA has reported that two victims were injured in a shooting outside Crazy Girls located at 1433 N La Brea Ave, Los Angeles, CA 90028.
At approximately 4:30 a.m., a shooting occurred just outside of the Hollywood nightclub. When police arrived, they found two victims that had suffered gunshot wounds. Police are still investigating to determine the events that led up to the shooting.
Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson has years of experience representing shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. Bobby has kindly shared some of his knowledge on the legal right for victims to pursue lawsuits for nightclub shootings.
"Nightclubs and bars are generally associated with issues of violent crime, ranging from fights to shootings. This understanding makes it vital that nightclub owners keep their premises safe for their patrons and staff. Actually, nightclub owners are legally responsible for providing security measures that help reduce the risk of crime, including foreseeable violent crimes like shootings. Suggested security measures include hiring security guards and installing cameras on the property."
"Not all nightclub shootings are foreseeable. However, if it weren't for negligence by the nightclub owner, some could have been prevented. Suppose a nightclub had a history of violence, but the owner failed to improve safety to reduce that violence. In cases such as this, the owner could be considered negligent in a lawsuit. Additional safety improvements could include hiring more security guards and conducting weapons searches. Victims are advised to employ the guidance of an experienced violent crime attorney to determine their best legal actions."
