Filing Lawsuits For Victims Shot at a Bar

Attorney contributor Brian Kent is a crime victim attorney who represents victims and their families in civil lawsuits for crimes enabled by negligence. Brian recently offered to share some of his experience filing lawsuits for victims of bar shootings.

"Bars often have issues with violent criminal activity, from fights to stabbings to shootings. This is why bar owners have a legal obligation to provide basic security measures for their establishment. In fact, if a bar owner fails to fulfill their duty to keep their property secure and their patrons safe, victims can hold the bar liable for any damages they suffer as a result of this negligence. Measures can include security cameras, adequate lighting, and security guards."

"While not all bar shootings are foreseeable, many may not have happened if it weren't for the security negligence by the bar owner. If the bar or its location had a previous history of violent crime, but the owner failed to make safety improvements to reduce that violence, the bar owner could be considered negligent. Victims of bar shooting or the families of those fatally shot should hire an experienced crime victim attorney to guide them through their legal options."
