Can Bar Owners Be Liable for Violent Crimes on Their Properties?
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of CrimeVictim.Attorney represents victims of criminal violence in civil lawsuits.
“There are usually quite a few different legal options for victims and their families who are harmed or killed by inadequate security on a commercial property. Bar owners have a legal duty to protect all patrons and employees on the premises and they can do this by offering adequate security. If a bar owner fails offer adequate security and a shooting injures or kills someone because of his or her negligence then the victims may have grounds for a lawsuit,” explains Kent.
He went on to say, “Many of these types of cases are unique and complex because attorneys have to prove more than just inadequate security by the property owner. They also have to show that the crime committed was reasonably foreseeable. So if a bar owner becomes informed about an increased number of shootings in the area, chooses not to take precaution, and someone gets shot on site, he or she may be held liable for the victim’s injuries. It is important to remember that a reasonably foreseeable crime and a lack of adequate security must be proved before a property owner can be considered liable.
If you or a loved one has been a victim to a bar shooting, you can learn more about your legal options by meeting with a crime victim attorney. We encourage you to reach out to Mr. Kent who provided his legal advice on the matter.
