Can I Sue for Being Shot at a Bar?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard provides legal representation to bar shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. During a recent interview, Michael discussed some situations where victims can sue for bar shooting injuries

"When a bar shooting occurs, it is essential to find and arrest any suspects. Criminal courts allow the perpetrator to be charged and sentenced for their crimes. However, bar shooting victims may also be able to file a civil lawsuit. When negligence is a factor, and it can be proven that security failed to prevent the crime, victims may be able to file against a third party like the bar owner."

"When a bar shooting happens due to inadequate security or another form of negligence by the bar owner, the bar owner can be held liable. For example, a bar owner may be deemed negligent if there were past incidents of violence, but the owner made no security improvements. Security improvements could include adding security guards and conducting weapons checks. In cases of negligence, bar shooting victims and their families may have a case for a lawsuit that could help them recover financial compensation."
