When Are Bar Owners Liable For Failing to Prevent a Shooting?

Attorney contributor and shooting victim lawyer Jeff Gibson helps the victims of preventable shootings find justice in civil court. Here is some insight from him into the legal options available to bar shooting victims and their families:

Owning a bar, nightclub, restaurant, or any other business is a big responsibility. Part of this responsibility includes making sure the premises are consistently safe and free of preventable dangers. When a bar owner fails to keep their property safe and a customer gets injured or killed as a result of a preventable danger, the victim (or their family) may have grounds for a personal injury or wrongful death lawsuit against the property owner.

In some cases of bar violence, the violent incident may have been prevented by better security standards on the property. For example, a shooting may have been prevented if the bar had security guards who were tasked with searching guests for weapons before entering the bar.

Determining if a bar owner is liable for a shooting is a complicated process which will require a careful investigation. If you or someone you love was wounded or killed during a violent incident at a bar or nightclub, you can learn more about your legal options by speaking with an experienced crime victim attorney.
