How Much Can I Sue For Being Shot at a Bar?

Attorney contributor Brian Kent has been representing bar shooting victims and their families in private civil lawsuits for years. As an experienced shooting victim lawyer, he frequently gets asked how much can I sue for being shot. He recently discussed this during an interview. 

"When a shooting occurs at a bar leaving people injured or killed, the victims and their families have legal rights that may include financial compensation. However, many factors will decide the different sum and outcome of the lawsuit. Victims and their families should always seek the legal advice of an experienced shooting victim lawyer to discuss their case."

"A lawyer will go over the legal responsibility of the bar owners. If a bar has not taken the safety of its staff and patrons seriously, it can be deemed negligent. Proper security may include security cameras, ample parking lot lighting, and multiple security personnel. When a shooting occurs on a bar property with insufficient security, the victims may be able to file a lawsuit based on negligence."

"Additionally, the victim's legal representation will want to prove the crime was foreseeable. When a bar or its location is known to have violent activity, the bar owner can be held responsible for improving its security to reduce the risks to their partons. If they fail to increase their security, they can be held liable for the damages. Compensation will be determined by many aspects of the incident, so victims and their families should contact an experienced shooting victim lawyer to explore their legal options."
