Are Strip Club Owners Liable for Shootings on Their Properties?

Attorney contributor Michael Haggard represents bar and nightclub shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits, helping them fight for the justice and financial compensation they deserve. Here are a few of his thoughts on strip club owner liability for shootings on their properties:

The owners of strip clubs and all other businesses have a legal duty to make sure their properties are safe. Known as premises liability, these laws protect the public from suffering preventable injuries due to foreseeable property dangers. As part of premises liability laws, business owners are also required to provide a reasonable standard of security in order to reduce the risk of violent crime.

When a shooting happens at a strip club, it's important to determine if the shooting could have been prevented by better security standards. If the answer is yes, then the strip club owner could be considered negligent and held liable for damages if the shooting victims or their families decide to file a lawsuit.

For example, if there were no security guards, metal detectors, or any other preventative measures in place to prevent violence, the club owner might be considered liable for inadequate security.

If you or a loved one has recently become the victim of a strip club shooting, it's important to be aware of your family's legal options. You can learn more by speaking with an experienced crime victim attorney.
