Legal Options For Bar Shooting Victims & Their Families

As an experienced crime victim attorney, I’ve represented bar shooting victims and their families in civil lawsuits. The owners of bars, nightclubs, and other businesses have a legal duty to ensure that their customers, employees, and other property visitors are safe from preventable dangers. If a shooting happens because of inadequate security or another failure to keep the property safe, the bar owner could be held liable in a lawsuit.

Negligence in bar shooting cases is complex. In order for a bar owner to be considered negligent, it must be established that the shooting was reasonably foreseeable and only occurred due to negligence, such as inadequate or negligent security. In order to understand your legal options as a victim or family member of a victim, it’s best to discuss your case with an experienced crime victim attorney.
