Can Bar Owners Be Liable For Violent Crime on Their Properties?

Brian Kent is an attorney contributor at www.crimevictim.Attorney who represents victims of parking lot shootings. Mr. Kent shares his insight on the legal options available to these victims and their families.

“Under certain circumstances, shooting victims on commercial properties may have the option to file a lawsuit against the property owner. The shooting must have only occurred due to inadequate security. All commercial property owners have to provide adequate security on their premises in order to protect their patrons and employees from preventable crime. If a property owner fails to provide adequate security and a violent crime injures someone on the property due to their negligence, then the victim may have grounds for a lawsuit against the property owner,” says Mr, Kent.

“In additino to inadequate security causing the shooting, the crime must be considered reasonably foreseeable. A reasonably foreseeable crime is one that occurs at a place with a prior history of violent crime, yet with no security improvements established. For example, if a reasonably foreseeable shooting occurs at a bar due to inadequate security, then the property owner may be considered responsible for the crime”, concludes Mr. Kent.

If you or a loved one has experienced a similar incident as the one above, you can learn about your legal options by discussing your case with a crime victim attorney.
