Can Bar Shooting Victims and Their Families File Lawsuits?

Crime victim lawyer Kevin Biniazin represents bar shooting victims and their families, helping them recover the financial compensation they deserve. Kevin has offered to discuss situations where a bar owner can be sued for a shooting:

Security is one of the key responsibilities for bar owners. Patrons and employees should be reasonably safe from preventable dangers, including foreseeable violent crime. But unfortunately, sometimes bar shootings happen due to the bar owner’s negligent failure adequately address security.

When a shooting happens at a bar, the full circumstances of the crime should be investigated – including whether the shooting was preventable and whether it happened due to negligence. For example, a bar owner could be considered negligent for failing to improve security after past incidents of violence.

If you or a loved one has been wounded or killed in a bar shooting, you can learn more about your legal options by discussing your case with one of our experienced crime victim lawyers.
