Legal Options of Victims Shot Outside of a Club

Attorney contributor Brian Kent, an experienced violent crimes attorney, represents victims of shootings. Below, Brian highlights the legal rights of victims harmed outside a club.

“Club owners have a legal obligation to try their best to protect patrons on and around their property. To ensure patrons’ safety, owners should implement security measures, for example, cameras and guards. If an owner does not provide adequate safety measures, they may be considered liable for crimes that occur.”

“In some cases, when violent crimes occur, they are the result of negligence on behalf of a third party (e.g., a property owner). A club owner may be considered negligent if a crime is deemed foreseeable. An example of a foreseeable crime is if crime rates increased in the area, but no safety measures were increased. In cases of foreseeable crimes where the owner is negligent, the victims and their families may be grounds for a civil lawsuit. Victims of these crimes and their families should explore their options further with an experienced violent crime attorney.”
