Can Bar Owners Be Held Liable For Shootings and Stabbings?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney helps the victims of preventable violent crime and their families recover the financial compensation they deserve for damages related to their injuries or their loved one’s death. We’ve asked him to add some information on the legal options available to the victims of bar shootings and stabbings:
Security is a crucial responsibility for any bar or nightclub owner. Like all other property owners, the owners of these businesses are legally obligated to make sure their premises are free from foreseeable dangers which could result in injuries or deaths. This means that bar and nightclub owners are legally obligated to have suitable security measures in place which can reduce the risk of violent crime.
In cases where inadequate security or another type of negligence plays a role in enabling a violent crime to occur, the victims and their families may have the option to file a lawsuit against the property owner. For example, a bar owner may be considered negligent if they fail to have any security measures in place, such as security guards and weapons searches for customers.
