Can I Sue For Being Shot Outside a Hookah Bar? 

Attorney contributor Bobby Thompson has represented numerous victims of shootings and their families in civil lawsuits. Bobby recently explained how victims shot outside of a hookah bar can get compensation by filing a lawsuit. 

"Property owners, such as hookah bars, are required by law to protect against foreseeable harm to anyone on their property. If an investigation reveals that the property owner lacked adequate security to protect its visitors and staff, the victim or their family may seek justice by pursuing a claim against the owner for compensation. Sufficient security may include ample lighting, hired security guards, surveillance cameras, among others."

"When a property owner fails to make adjustments to their security even though the establishment has a history of violence, the crimes committed could be deemed foreseeable. Victims and their families can learn more about their legal options for filing a lawsuit against the negligent property owner and how much compensation may be awarded by speaking with an experienced shooting victim attorney."
