Legal Recourse For Victims of Bar Shootings
Attorney contributor Brian Kent of www.crimevictim.Attorney works closely with victims of violent crime in civil cases. He has offered to share some of his knowledge on the legal options available to violent crime victims and their families:
Commercial property owners are legally required to make certain all of their customers and employees are safe from preventable crime. In order to do so, they must offer adequate security on or around the premises. Some forms of adequate security may include video surveillance and security guards. If someone is injured in a shooting on a commercial property due to lack of security, then the property owner may be considered liable.
In addition to proving inadequate security on the premises, the victim’s attorney must also be able to prove that the violent crime committed was reasonably foreseeable. A reasonable foreseeable crime is one that occurs on a property with a prior history of violent crime, but no security improvements were put in place. On these grounds, a victim may also have a security negligence lawsuit. Essentially, if a reasonably foreseeable shooting occurs at a bar due to inadequate security, then the property owner may be held liable.
If you or a loved one has been injured or killed in a bar shooting, you can contact an experienced attorney to learn more about the legal options available to you.
